James and the Giant Peach

Based on the book by Roald Dahl; Music & Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Book by Timothy Allen McDonald

James and the Giant Peach is a whimsical and magical journey of one boy out to change his life and find a real family. After discovering a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach, James climbs inside and meets a group of outrageous oversized insects who’ve made the peach their home. James and his new friends roll their peach into the ocean and embark on a fantastic voyage forcing them to face hunger, sharks, and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, they learn to work together as a family. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and curiously quirky characters, James and the Giant Peach is a musical for the whole family to enjoy.
