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!

Based on Roald Dahl’s book of the same name, James and the Giant Peach is a whimsical and magical journey of one boy out to change his life and find a real family!


We are monitoring the recommendations by the CDC for mitigation to reduce the risk of illness transmission.  Due to our small theatre space, we are unable to provide socially distanced seating, but we are implementing the following mitigation efforts:

  • Reduced audience sizes to 75% of capacity to allow patrons to spread out as much as possible.
  • Increasing the amount and frequency of cleaning between shows.
  • Requiring masks for all volunteers and audience members when not actively eating/drinking.
  • Reduced the size of the cast to improve safety backstage.
  • Increased airflow for our HVAC system and purchased air purifiers to clean air regularly.
