SUMMER SPOTLIGHT FOR TEENS - JAMES & THE GIANT PEACH JR.
Ages 13 to 17
July 24 to Aug 11, 2023
1 Three Week Session, Mondays to Fridays
Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.
Final presentations are currently planned to be live. A friends and family performance will take place in the theatre on the last Thursday of the program with a camp performance on the final day.
