JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH
Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach features a wickedly tuneful score by the Tony Award-nominated team of Benj Pasek and Justin 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).
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, 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.
NOTE: This program is only available for participants ages 13-18 and must be a middle or high school student.
Auditions for the Student-Led production are NOV 12, 13, & 14, 2020.
