Free Read: Take a Bite Out of James and the Giant Peach!

Go on a zany adventure with this free read of Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach! Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by the Oscar, Grammy, and Tony Award-winning team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dogfight, Dear Evan Hansen) and a curiously quirky book by Timothy Allen McDonald (Roald Dahl's Willy WonkaThe Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley), James and the Giant Peach is a delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl book. Above all, it's about the meaning of home and family and the unconvential ways we find them.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that 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 oversized personalities. After the peach 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.
