Fairy Tale

James and the Giant Peach

April 21 - 30, 2017

Cantey V. Sutton Theatre

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. The peach launches James on a journey of enormous proportions. He finds himself among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, and he embarks on a dangerous voyage. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family.

From the book by Roald Dahl. Dramatized by Richard R. George.

Director: Kathleen Rudolph

Read the review: “James and the Giant Peach, both in length and subject matter … is ideal for young theatregoers, though the young at heart who loved this story as children will also find much to enjoy.” Read the full Talkin’ Broadway review.
