Music and Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul

Book by Timothy Allen McDonald

Based on the book by Roald Dahl


Young James (orphaned when his parents were killed in a tragic rhinoceros accident) longs to escape the custody of his hilariously horrible aunts. When the backyard peach tree magically yields a fantastical fruit of preposterous proportion, James and a group of colossal creepy crawlers roll off together on a series of absurdly amazing adventures!  In addition to the wacky, wicked wit of Roald Dahl, this delicious new musical features a knock-your-socks-off score from the Tony-nominated Broadway songwriting team of Pasek and Paul. A perfect family treat for the holiday season!


Appropriate for families with children old enough to appreciate Dahl’s delightfully bizarre writing style.


Approximate runtime: Approx. 75 minutes plus a 10 minute intermission at weekend performances.


Sunday, Dec 7th offers a sign-interpreted performance.
