|James Mullooly and John Fernandez will play Charles Wallace|
James Mullooly, a fourth-grader at Wauwatosa Montessori, plays Charles Wallace in the Space Cast. He describes Charles Wallace as a genius and enjoys playing a guy who can read minds. How does he channel Charles? “I pretty much just imagine how someone like Leonardo da Vinci would act and then do that.” When not on stage you can find James hanging out with his older siblings (he’s the youngest of five!), playing soccer, golfing or drawing. In the Time Cast, Charles Wallace will be played by fifth-grader John Fernandez. John loves acting because it’s a chance to “step out of your own shoes and do fun stuff you wouldn’t normally get to, like get hypnotized!” He also likes the challenge of learning lines and being a part of a cast. James and John have been onstage many times, but a First Stage production is a first for both of these young performers.
