STARS Theater Company invites local young people to join the 29th Annual Fall & Winter Youth Musicals. Interested students will perform in the upcoming musicals, Disney’s JUNGLE BOOK Kids for ages 8-12, and JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH for teens. Auditions are scheduled for Saturday, August 5, and all interested students are encouraged to attend.
Students ages 8-12 audition for Disney’s JUNGLE BOOK Kids, 9:00am-noon and Teens audition for JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH Jr, 12:30pm-4:30pm. STARS Theater Company meets at the Community Building behind the FUMC Bedford located at 2012 Shady Brook in Bedford.
Based on Roald Dahl's quirky story, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH JR. is a "masterpeach" of a tale. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down the old peach tree, his delicious adventure begins. He discovers a magic potion that grows a giant peach and launches a journey of enormous proportions. He befriends a motley group of singing insects that join his journey in the giant peach across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and struggles along the way. Teens will enjoy the wickedly tuneful score and witty dialogue. Characters include James, his wicked aunts, Spider & Sponge; the singing insects, Ladybug, Grasshopper, Earthworm, Centipede, Spider and Glow Worm; the magic wizard, Ladahlord and many more. Most roles can be played by male or female actors and all roles will be played by students.
Ages 8-12 will have a blast in Disney’s JUNGLE BOOK Kids, adapted from the classic Disney animated film. Banished by the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan, Mowgli and his panther friend, Bagheera, are on the run. Along the way they meet a sinister snake named Kaa, a herd of elephants and a giant bear named Baloo, who teaches them the swinging rhythm of the jungle. Their adventure continues after a dangerous encounter with King Louie and his band of monkeys. When Shere Khan returns, they must rally their friends to battle and restore peace in the jungle. Kids ages 8-12 will have a blast in this jungle jumping with jazzy tunes including I Wanna Be Like You and, everyone’s favorite, Bare Necessities. The musical is packed with great roles for boys and girls and a delightful toe tapping score.
