James and the Giant Peach

Directed by Ira Bauer-Spector
Written Roald Dahl
Adapted for the stage by David Wood

When poor James Henry Trotter loses his parents in a horrible rhinoceros accident, he's forced to live with wicked aunts Sponge and Spiker. Over time, he becomes "the saddest and loneliest boy you could find." Then one day, a wizened old man gives James a bag of magic crystals that promise to reverse his misery forever. When James accidentally spills the crystals on his aunts' withered peach tree, he sets his adventure in motion. From the old tree a single peach grows, and grows, and grows some more, until finally James climbs inside the giant fruit and rolls away to a whole new life. James befriends an assortment of hilarious characters, including Grasshopper, Earthworm, Miss Spider, and Centipede. A classic by Roald Dahl.
Recommended for ages 8 and older. ASL-Interpreted performance at 2pm Sat, March 15, 2014.
