‘James and the Giant Peach’ at The Apollo
The Apollo Civic Theatre Youth Theatre Company presents “James and the Giant Peach, Jr.” live on stage March 11-13. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 1 p.m. on Saturday and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Based on one of Roald Dahl’s “James and the Giant Peach, Jr.” is a new take on this ‘masterpeach’ of a tale! Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical 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.
