A lonely boy living with two cruel aunts finds an escape in the most unexpected place in James and the Giant Peach.

California State University Sacramento Theatre and Dance Department is presenting Richard R. George's dramatization of Roald Dahl's classic . 

That peachy tale begins when magic crystals James accidentally drops under a peach tree causes one peach to grow to the size of a house. The giant fruit becomes a moneymaking attraction for his aunts until James finds his way Inside the peach. There he becomes part of a family of seven oversized insects. When the peach falls off the tree, his aunts are literally crushed and James is off to adventure. 

The play will incorporate actors, large scale puppets, dancers, and Roald Dahl’s fantastical words to tell this wonderful story to children and adults alike. Words like: lickswishy, delumptious,  uckyslush, or scrumdiddlyumtious.  Everyone has heard at least one of these marvelous words.  After all, Roald Dahl is one of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century. 

”It's very important that we preserve the tradition of allowing young children to run free with their imaginations and magic and imagination are the same thing.” - Steven Spielberg 

James and the Giant Peach will be a magical production for any age!  Period!
