About the Show

Capture the journey of a lifetime as we kick-off our season with one of Roald Dahl’s most heartwarmingly quirky stories. 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 voyage of gigantic proportions. During their cross-ocean travels, James and the peach’s oversized insect residents encounter hunger, sharks and loads of disagreements, and James must learn to use his quick wit to finally land on New York’s Empire State Building. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score from the creative team of Dear Evan Hansen this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery will charm one and all.

This show is appropriate for all ages.

  • James is adopted by cruel relatives, and questions the meaning and value of family. Then he makes new friends that he decides can be a different kind of family. Are there friends in your life that you consider part of your family?
  • Along with friends and family, James experiences a shift in his self esteem. One reason is that his new friends show respect for his ideas instead of rejecting them. Who are people in your life that support your ideas and talents? How does it feel when they do?
