About the show:
Critics rave: James and the Giant Peach is a “masterpeach!”
The Studio is thrilled to produce this family favorite, Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach! Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by the Tony Award-nominated team of Pasek and Paul (Dear Evan Hansen, La La Land, Dogfight and A Christmas Story the Musical) and a curiously quirky book, this new production is sure to win you over!
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach… and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building.
It’s wacky, crazy, magical FUN! And your family is going to LOVE it!
In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above.
