Young orphan James is sent to live with his two cruel and conniving aunts who intend to use him as their own personal servant. When the aunts go for a day of fun and frolic at the seashore, James is left behind to chop down their old, infested fruit tree. Disappointed, James sets out to do as he is tasked; however, before he can do so, a mysterious stranger offers him a life-changing magic potion - which James accidentally spills onto the tree causing one of the peaches to grow – and grow – and grow! The aunts see the peach as an opportunity for a financial windfall! Before they can cash in, however, the peach breaks loose – with James having been pulled inside – and rolls into the ocean launching a journey of enormous proportions. In the course of the adventures, James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.  

Based upon one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic. Audiences OF ALL AGES will be captivated. Attending schools will receive Educational Support Materials containing related vocabulary, lesson plans, activities, and exercises for class use before and after the shows.
