Fieldtrip to James and the Giant Peach



From Tony-nominated songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul comes a new, heartwarming musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic. When young James Trotter is shipped off to live with his wretched aunts, he longs for a real family and a new home. All seems lost until he discovers a magical giant peach inhabited by fantastical creatures. Together with Grasshopper, Ladybug, Centipede, Spider and Earthworm, James embarks on an extraordinary adventure, sailing across the sea to distant lands.

Audience Advisory: James’ parents are eaten by a rhinoceros (puppet) at the London Zoo at the beginning of this play. We recommend you discuss this with your children prior to attending the performance.

Running Time: 90 minutes (plus a 15 minute intermission for public performances).

This performance is recommended for children 6+, but we think that most of our K-2 students will be able to enjoy it.

Consent forms and sign up sheets are on the parent table.  If your child is interested in attending, please fill out the forms and return to your teacher’s file by Dec. 5.
