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!

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
