James and the Giant Peach JR.
Jan 28 @ 7:00 pm – Jan 29 @ 9:00 pm

Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, 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 script, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is entertainment for the whole family.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. 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.

Showtimes: Fri 1/28 at 7 PM; Sat 1/29 at 2 PM and 7 PM. Tickets: $10 per person.
