Theatre for Young Audiences Version
Roald Dahl's JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH is now a musical for the whole family to enjoy! Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by the Tony
nominated team of
Pasek and Paul (DOGFIGHT and A Christmas Story the Musical) and a
curiously quirky book by Timothy Allen McDonald (ROALD DAHL'S WILLY
WONKA, THE MUSICAL
ADVENTURES OF FLAT STANLEY), critics rave JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH is a "masterpeach!"
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old
fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous
peach - and launches
a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in
the center of the gigantic peach among human-sized insects with equally
personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the
ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements.
Thanks to James'
quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and
work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the
adventure takes a
whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building.
