VCUarts Theatre presents Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach, a delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure where a boy and his insect friends take an amazing journey across the ocean. Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach is a new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale.  Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach is an adventurous musical about courage, self-discovery and finding your true family. Performances will take place April 15th – 24th, 2022 at the W.E. Singleton Center for the Performing Arts, 922 Park Ave  (VCU Campus near the intersection of Harrison and Park Ave). Masks encouraged for all audience members. No food or drink permitted.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way. Join us for a playful show complete with whimsical costumes, creative set design, and one-of-a-kind puppets designed and built by artist Noel Williams for this outlandish and larger-than-life tale.

General Admission Tickets $25. Discounts available for Seniors (55+), students, and alumni. Box office opens one hour prior to performance, doors open about thirty minutes prior to performance.

Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach has a run time of about 110 minutes with one intermission and is recommended for ages 8+
