James recently had the incredible pleasure of playing ‘Mr. Wormwood’ (Matilda’s crooked crook of a father) in the California regional premiere of Matilda at 5-Star Theatricals! The production also starred Nicholas Mongiardo-Cooper as ‘Miss Trunchbull’, Katie Deshan as ‘Miss Honey’, and Janna Cardia as ‘Mrs. Wormwood’. Helmed by former Cabrillo Music Theatre artistic director, Lewis Wilkenfeld, the show featured choreography by Heather Castillo and music direction by Jennifer Lin.
