James and the Giant Peach at Theatre School @ North Coast Rep
April 7, 2022 @ 10:00 am - April 10, 2022 @ 5:30 pm$25
The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep presents the colorful musical Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach Jr. as its next student production. Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this “masterpeach” of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.
Director, Benjamin Cole, is thrilled to guide his talented cast of student actors. “You’ll see some outstanding dance choreography, hear some beautiful and eclectic songs, and experience devoted emotional commitment between the actors,” Cole beams. “What I love best about this production is the quirky humor Roald Dahl is famous for mixed with truly heartfelt emotional release with themes of family and support.” The show runs a whizzing adventure of 80 minutes with no intermission and promises to delight audiences throughout. Additional production staff includes Assistant Direction and Puppet design by Nicolas Castillo, Music Direction by Sean Boyd, Dance Choreography by Ciarlene Coleman, Costume Design by Roxas Shepherd, Props design by Phillip Korth, and Lights and Sound Design by Matt FitzGerald.
