James and the Giant Peach
Words & Music by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
Book by Timothy Allen McDonald
Based on the Book James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

Directed by Carole Higgins, Choreographed by Kayla Dunbar and Musical Directed by Steven Greenfield


From Tony-nominated songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul comes a new, heartwarming musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic. When young James Trotter is shipped off to live with his wretched aunts, he longs for a real family and a new home. All seems lost until he discovers a magical giant peach inhabited by fantastical creatures. Together with Grasshopper, Ladybug, Centipede, Spider and Earthworm, James embarks on an extraordinary adventure, sailing across the sea to distant lands.


Themes: Friendship, Adventure, Resilience, Home

Audience Advisory: James’ parents are eaten by a rhinoceros at the London Zoo at the beginning of this play, and James is sent to live with his very nasty aunts. We recommend you discuss this with your children prior to attending the performance.

Running Time: 90 minutes (plus a 15 minute intermission for public performances only).
