This Classic Story Finally Hits the Stage! Check Out James and the Giant Peach Next Wednesday

A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insect friends! An incredible journey! This amazing adventure of James Henry Trotter will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape. On Wednesday, July 31st, head to Willow Bend Center for the Arts for a special presentation of James and The Giant Peach, beginning at 12:15 p.m.

Roald Dahl's story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises. You will see James, the wise Old-Green-Grasshopper and the pessimistic Earthworm. You will also see James' mean Aunt Spiker and cruel Aunt Sponge come to a suitably sticky end.

Roald Dahl was a spy, an ace fighter pilot, a chocolate historian, and a medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG, James and The Giant Peach, and a treasury of original, evergreen, and beloved children’s books. He remains for many the world’s No. 1 storyteller.
