Leeds Center for the Arts presents James and the Giant Peach Jr!
November 8-10 and 15-17, 2019.
Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM
Sundays at 2:30 PM
Based on 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 a classic!
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.
Performed by a cast of over fifty students ages eight through high school, this dazzling show is filled with twists and turns, high energy music and dance, and one giant peach!
