Theatre for Young Audiences Version
Roald Dahl's fantastical tale of a boy, his insect friends, and their amazing journey across the ocean on a giant peach of fruit. (ADAPTED TO ONE ACT)
Roald Dahl's James And The Giant Peach is now a Theatre for Young Audiences 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
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.
A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, the creative possibilities with James And The Giant Peach are endless. Actors will love playing the oulandish characters and
performing brand new material from one of Broadway's hottest duos.

The acclaimed Paper Mill Playhouse production of Children Of Eden (which was compared favorably in the press to The Lion King) used several children in the chorus, who played many of the animals by means of puppetry, costumes and masks, to great effect.
