Description

This rollicking musical version of the beloved children’s classic returns due to overwhelming demand after a nearly sold-out run in 2014. A wonderfully whimsical journey to warm up the winter months. Look for the giant peach on YPT’s roof!

“… theatre for young audiences as it should be: tasty and entertaining but with something to chew on as well.”
– Toronto Star

Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
