Performing at Area Stage Company (Dec 7 - Dec 22)
The Area Stage Company and Theatre Conservatory is very excited to announce the premiere of JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH on Friday, December 7th 2012 at 8:00 P.M.
Wizzpopping wonder and fruit filled fun abound in this stage adaptation of Roald Dahl’s greatest adventure story. James is a lonely young, who is forced to work like a slave for the most revolting aunts in England. One day a mystical old man gives him a bag of magic… but when he accidently spills it near the old peach tree, the most marvelous things begin to happen!
The David Wood adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic tale is a must for all parents and children. The tale works perfectly on stage, keeping youngsters glued and entertained throughout. James and the Giant Peach is a wonderful piece of imaginative theatre for the youngster and the young at heart.
