What is this show?

From the Oscar-winning team that brought you the music of La La Land and the hit Broadway musicals Dear Evan Hansen and A Christmas Story comes an all new, adventure-filled family classic based on the beloved story by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).

Sent to chop down an old fruit tree by his devious aunts, young James discovers a magic potion that turns an ordinary peach into a massive, oversized GIANT!

Finding himself at the center of this king-sized peach and surrounded by life size insects (with larger than life personalities), the peach falls from the tree, rolling into the nearby ocean—and these new cohabitants from very different communities must face even bigger problems—hunger, dangerous foes, and learning how to communicate when facing challenging decisions.

A journey of epic proportions, James and the Giant Peach is the lyrical, hummable, and fantastical musical for all ages
