James and the Giant Peach - SOLD OUT
After a fantastic reception at Showcase Victoria and September Long Paddock 2010, James and the Giant Peach has a National tour in development for 2012.
Everyone's favourite Roald Dahl's story of James, a lonely young boy who lives with Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, two of the most revolting aunts in the history of revolting relatives (and two of Dahl's most delightfully horrible creations!). Then one day an accident with a bag full of magic near an old peach tree makes some truly incredible things start to happen!
A Giant Peach grows and inside James meets his insect friends – together they embark on the adventure of a lifetime aboard the Giant Peach.
The Roald Dahl classic James and the Giant Peach is a wonderful production which will captivate young and old alike. The story would often set up a scene which seemed impossible to enact, only to be imaginatively and unexpectedly realised. The all-ages play of the year!
