Based on the book James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, James and the Giant Peach JR is a fantastical tale of a boy, his insect friends, and their amazing journey across the ocean on a giant piece of fruit. Featuring music and lyrics by the Tony and Academy Award-winning songwriters Justin Paul and Benj Pasek and book by Timothy Allen McDonald, James and the Giant Peach JR is based on the beloved book by Roald Dahl and tells the story of a young orphaned child who finds a loving family in a most peculiar way. Sent by his mean, conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, James discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous peach occupied by some not-so-normal characters. From the center of the gigantic fruit, James and the unlikely crew launch a journey of enormous proportions. Together they discover that while we are all born into a family, we then go on to create a family of our own.
