JAMES - our young hero; from a downtrodden, lonely child, he develops into a brave “captain” of the insect band; he acts as narrator, too. A2 to A4
OLD-GREEN-GRASSHOPPER - elderly, genial, courteous, avuncular, musical; he helps narrate (THE ROLE OF THE GRASSHOPPER HAS BEEN CAST.) A2 to A4
MISS SPIDER - occasionally sharp, even a little sinister, but ultimately kind, her marathon threat-spinning to help save the peach is truly heroic. A3 to A5
CENTIPEDE - a sparky, cocky, warm-hearted Jack-the-lad. A2 to A4
LADYBIRD - posh though not prissy, pretty though not vain, volatile though level-headed. A3 to A5
EARTHWORM - not only blind, but a pessimist, a doom merchant whose standing in the group and whose self-esteem improves no end, thanks to James. A2 to A4
All actors will be expected to show up to the first rehearsal memorized. All actors cast will be responsible for every aspect of the production, including load-in and out of all props, costumes and set pieces. The actors may be asked to help find costume and prop pieces for the production. All actors will be paid a flat rate rehearsal stipend of $200, and an additional $35 per performance. All actors will report to the performance locations via their own transportation and therefore must have reliable transportation. All rehearsals and performances will be held during the day- actors who are unavailable during the day should not audition. Please note that all rehearsals, tech rehearsals, and performances are mandatory. Actors who fail to be on time on a regular basis or make all of the rehearsals will be compensated less than the above rate.
Actors should go to ntpa.us/peach to schedule an audition slot. Email Bethany at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions!
