When James is sent by his cruel and conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that launches a journey of enormous proportions.
Suddenly, he finds himself in the center of a gigantic peach among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities. After the peach falls from the tree and rolls downhill right into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, they learn to live and work together as a family.
This is an adventure musical for the whole family! It features a wickedly tuneful score by the Tony Award-nominated team of Pasek and Paul (A Christmas Story the Musical) and a curiously quirky book by Timothy Allen McDonald (Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka).
Critics rave: James and the Giant Peach is a “masterpeach!”
