James and the Giant Peach, Jr.
Music and Lyrics by Justin Paul and Benj Pasek; Book by Timothy Allen McDonald; Based on the book by Roald Dahl
Roald Dahl’s beloved classic introduces us to one boy, two awful aunts, five larger-than-life insects, and a giant peach! What happens when magic crystals cause a withered old tree to create the largest and most magnificent peach ever seen? Luckily, a boy named James and a handful of bugs just happen to be nearby. When the peach finally snaps free of its stem, it sweeps them, and the audience, along a marvelous adventure from the White Cliffs of Dover all the way to the Empire State Building. This “Masterpeach” of a musical will delight the entire family!
