James & The Giant Peach

A Play in the Studio directed by Paige Hoke

Show Dates: May 16, 17,18, 23, 24 & 25 in 2014

A fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape... This colorful story reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with the point of no return. You will be transported into an unlikely world inside a humongous peach with hilarious characters James meets along the way, including the wise Old-Green-Grasshopper, the pessimistic Earthworm, and James' mean Aunt Spiker and cruel Aunt Sponge who come to a suitably sticky end in this Roald Dahl classic.
