James And The Giant Peach

No performance info available


Presented by Sell A Door Theatre Company

Roald Dahl’s classic tale follows the adventurous, young James and his friends – Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybird and Earthworm.

Beginning at the end of the story, like all great tales do, James and his friends are living in the giant peach stone in Central Park, New York, but the real story lies in how they got there, all the way from the White Cliffs of Dover.

Orphan James Henry Trotter was sent to live with his evil aunts, Spiker and Sponge, after his parents were killed in a tragic rhinoceros accident. Just when James thinks he will never be allowed to have fun again he meets an old man who gives him a bag containing the ingredients for the strongest magic potion in the world. When James accidentally spills it near the old peach tree in his aunts' garden the most marvellous things start to happen and he begins the greatest adventure of his life.

Join James and his new found insect friends on their extraordinary journey fraught with enemies, dangers and excitement, which will take them halfway around the world in a giant peach full of friends, music and laughter.

James And The Giant Peach is suitable for all the family.

Thu 19 May at 1pm will be British Sign Language interpreted.

Sat 21 May at 11am will be a Relaxed Performance.
