Academy Youth Productions presents Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach JR., a brand new take on the classic Roald Dahl “masterpeach” of a tale.
March 5 & 6 at 6:30pm
at the Academy of Music Theatre, 274 Main Street in Northampton MA
Sponsored by Greenfield Savings Bank
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.
