From the book by Roald Dahl. Dramatized by Richard R. George.
Directed by John Budzyna, Assistant Director Deirdre Budzyna
Fri. April 10, 4pm & 7pm
Sat. April 11, 3pm & 7pm
A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insect friends! An incredible journey! This amazing adventure of James Henry Trotter will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape. 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. Join James, Old-Green Grasshopper, Silkworm, Centipede, Spider, Lady Bug and Earthworm as they take us on an amazing journey in a Giant Peach. You will also meet James’ mean Aunt Spiker (played by Anne Easter Smith) and cruel Aunt Sponge (played by Maureen Daley) come to a suitably sticky end. There are two casts of student actors so be sure to choose the correct show if you are fan of a particular performer!
