A delightfully offbeat musical adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, James and the Giant Peach 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-nominated songwriters Justin Paul and Benj Pasek and book by Timothy Allen McDonald, James and the Giant Peach is based on the beloved book by Roald Dahl and tells the story of James Henry Trotter, a young orphan whose parents were eaten by a rhinoceros and is sent to live with his dreadful aunts. Sent by his 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.
