A Magical Journey Full of Thrills and Adventures

From the Oscar-winning team that brought you the music of La La Land and the hit Broadway musicals Dear Evan Hansen and A Christmas Story comes an all new, adventure-filled family classic based on the beloved story by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Sent to chop down an old fruit tree by his devious aunts, young James discovers a magic potion that turns an ordinary peach into a massive, oversized GIANT! Finding himself at the center of this enormous peach and surrounded by singing, life-sized insects – with even larger personalities – the peach falls from the tree, rolling into the nearby ocean that launches James and his new friends on a journey of epic proportions. They face hunger, sharks, and plenty of disagreements along the way, while learning about communication, courage and self-discovery. James and the Giant Peach is a lyrical, hummable and fantastical musical for all ages.

Recommended for ages 6 and over (no babes in arms).
Show length: Approximately 2 hours, including one 15-minute intermission
