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 book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be 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.

JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH JR. is being presented March 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10, 2019 in the Hirt Theater at Bellevue Society for the Arts, 205 Maple Street. It is being directed by Cheryl Hansen-Showalter (Bellevue). Music Director is Michael Sooy (Old Fort). It is sponsored by Cornerstone Counseling.

BSA’s Tween Theatre is open to all children, ages 10–15, in any school system.
