JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH
NOVEMBER 5 - 6, 2016
A MUSICAL JOURNEY OF ENORMOUS PROPORTIONS
Join one of Roald Dahl’s most famous characters on a new family-friendly musical journey. When his conniving aunts send him to chop down their old fruit tree, James discovers a magic potion that brings him a giant peach and some giant insects with equally oversized personalities. When the peach rolls into the ocean with James and his insect friends aboard, they face hunger, sharks, mean aunts, and plenty of disagreements as they float across the Atlantic Ocean to New York City. Will James’ quick wit and creative thinking make this dangerous voyage a success?
This performance runs for 90 minutes with no intermission.
