Show Synopsis

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. 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 and his newfound bug pals.

You will also see James’ mean Aunt Spiker and cruel Aunt Sponge – will they face the consequences of their nasty actions? The action is tied together by the Narrator, a storyteller, motivator, emcee and audience friend. This age-old classic is sure to bring you on an exciting, peachy adventure!
