Duluth Playhouse Presents Roald Dahl's JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, JR.

Duluth Playhouse will present Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR, July 15 - 24, 2022, in the Family Theatre at the Depot.

Based on Roald Dahl's quirky original tale, James and his new friends roll their peach into the ocean and embark on a fantastic voyage that crosses paths with seagulls, sharks, and lands them on top of the Empire State Building! Instead of chopping down the tree like his conniving aunties ask, James discovers a magic potion which makes an old peach grow to an enormous size. Climbing inside, James meets a group of outrageous oversized insects who've made the peach their home. James and his newfound friends decide it's time to leave his aunties behind in search of an incredible journey and a new life.

"I am so excited for these young artists to tell this toe-tapping, magical story," Family Theatre Director Amber Burns enthused, "about a boy, a peach, and an adventurous journey to find home!"
