Encore Theatre Auditions for Roald Dahl’s


Words and Music by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
Book by Timothy Allen McDonald


When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach… and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities. A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, the creative possibilities with James and the Giant Peach are endless. Actors will love playing the outlandish characters and performing brand new material from one of Broadway’s hottest duos.

SHOW DATES: JUNE 29,30. JULY 1,2,5,6,7,8,10,11,12,13,14,2018

A senior head cheerleader whose world gets turned upside-down when she transfers schools. She is constantly working towards the goal of a championship and her “one perfect moment”. After using her friends to exact revenge, she realizes that friendship is much more lasting than a trophy.
Range: G3-F5

The head of the Jackson dance crew. She has fought her way from nothing to make a name for herself, which leads her to not put a lot of stock into people like Campbell. But she has a tendency to bring down her walls and embrace a true friendship.
Range: F#3-F5

One of the Jackson dance crew. Not the sharpest person on the squad, but is loud enough to make up for it.
Range: F3-Fb5

Jackson’s school DJ, mellow and friendly. A true Cinderella story, working his way from a dorky freshman to a smooth senior. He becomes attracted to Campbell for her heart, bravery, and determination.
Range: C#3-A4

La Cienega
One of the Jackson dance crew, a male to female transgendered. Fashionable and mouthy, he has owned his unique identity and professes a message of selflove.
Range: D3-E5

The only male cheerleader on the Buccaneers and Campbell’s boyfriend. Tender and comforting, but not the most adept to his surroundings.
Range: D3-Bb4

One of the Buccaneers cheerleaders. An extremely loyal follower of Skylar who keeps her intelligence hidden under a bushel.
Range: G3-D5

Campbell’s neighbor and the newest member of the Buccaneers cheerleaders. Her initial impression is one of naiveté and meekness. But she proves to be a social climber who schemes to take over Campbell’s life at any cost.
Range: A3-Eb5

One of the Jackson students and a hip-hop artist. His hormones make him lust after Bridget.
Range: Eb3-A4

The mascot for the Buccaneers. Nerdy and out of shape, but she strives for a place on the cheerleading team. Despite being an outcast, she has a good heart and a great spirit.
Range: A3-F5

One of the senior Buccaneers cheerleaders. Her popularity has given her quite the mean streak, though she does not have the brains to make up for it.
Range: G3-Gb5

One of the Jackson students, a hip-hop artist. A combination class clown and attempted ladies’ man, but he strives for fame and fortune.
Range: Db3-G4

Ensemble: Cheerleaders and Dancers
