Based on the beloved Roald Dahl story, set to a fantastic score by Pasek & Paul (the Tony- and Oscar-winning duo behind Dear Evan Hansen and La La Land), and brought magically to life by a talented troupe of Shorecrest Drama performers, this show is a treat for adults and kids alike!
A quick synopsis, to tickle your childhood-reading memory: “When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach… and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities but, after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family.”
