The Springfield Little Theatre Education Department is excited to present their 2022-2023 school touring production of JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, JR. at The Judith Enyeart Reynolds School of the Performing Arts for Springfield Little Theatre in the Reynolds Auditorium! JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, JR. a delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, a boy and his insect friends take an amazing journey across the ocean.
Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this “masterpeach” of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery 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.
Springfield Little Theatre’s 2022-2023 School Tour is presented with support from MERCY KIDS.
