Based on Roald Dahl’s book of the same name, James and the Giant Peach is a whimsical and magical journey of one boy out to change his life and find a real family. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by the Tony Award®-nominated team of Pasek and Paul and a curiously quirky book by Timothy Allen McDonald (Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley), James and the Giant Peach is “masterpeach!”
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities. Thanks to James’s quick wit and creative thinking, they learn to live and work together as a family during their dangerous voyage.
