    July 25, 2018, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM @ Rehearsal Studio A at the AHC

    Theatrical professionals will work with your young performer in all aspects of theatre, ranging from audition techniques to final performance.

Final performances are the final Saturday of each session. Check out www.theatreinthepark.org for more information. Before and after Open Studio available for an additional fee. Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, “James and the Giant Peach JR.” is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale! When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean!
