James and the Giant Peach

James and the Giant Peach

Details

Roald Dahl's "JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH"
adapted by David Wood

James lives with his Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge, the most mean and horrible Aunts in England. They make him work and slave and never let him play with other children. Then one day he meets a mysterious old man who gives him a gift … a bag of magical crocodile tongues. When James accidentally spills the bag near an old peach tree the most amazing things start to happen – and James sets out on the adventure of a lifetime with the most remarkable group of characters you could ever meet! 

Join Leeds Children's Theatre [http://www.leeds-childrens-theatre.co.uk/] as James, the Old Green Grasshopper, Miss Spider, Centipede, Earthworm and Ladybird emerge from the peach and tell the people of New York the tale of their fabulous adventure. 

“The content is timeless and, thanks to the adaptive genius of David Wood, is now enabling a new generation of children, of all ages, the chance to marvel at the brilliance of the master storyteller via the magic of the theatre.”  
Encore Magazine
“… an excellent adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic by David Wood … an excellent introduction to live theatre.”
The Stage 
 
This amateur production of “JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH (WOOD)” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
