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 (as he cleverly gets the Peach out of danger), the wise Old-Green-Grasshopper and the pessimistic Earthworm. You will also see James’ mean Aunt Spiker and cruel Aunt Sponge come to a suitably sticky end. The action is tied together by the Narrator, a storyteller, motivator, emcee, and audience friend. This quick costuming, simple props, and basic scenery coupled with a focus on character and movement will provide the cast and audience with an exciting, peachy adventure! Your student must bring their lunch every day. A readthrough will occur before the week of camp on 6/11 from 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM. Shows will be on June 23 at 7:00 PM and June 24 at 2:00 PM. 15 spots available.
