James and the Giant Peach at Festival Place
A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insect friends! An incredible journey! Roald Dahl’s story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises. When James Henry Trotter is shipped off to live with his wretched aunts he longs for a real family. All seems lost until he discovers a magical peach inhabited by fantastical creatures. Together with a Grasshopper, Ladybug, Centipede, Spider and Earthworm, James embarks on an extraordinary adventure.
Performed by a talented cast of local children and guided by a skilled group of industry professionals, James and the Giant Peach is sure to be great for kids and kids at heart!
