About this show

From the Oscar-winning team that brought you the music of La La Land and the hit Broadway musicals Dear Evan Hansen and A Christmas Story comes an all-new, adventure-filled family classic based on the beloved story by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).

Sent to chop down an old fruit tree by his devious aunts, young James discovers a magic potion that turns an ordinary peach into a massive, oversized GIANT! With James and life-size insects (boasting larger-than-life personalities) at its center, the peach falls from the tree, rolling into the nearby ocean. The new cohabitants from very different communities must face that problem and even bigger ones — hunger, dangerous foes, and learning how to communicate when facing challenging decisions.
