Atlantic for Kids: Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach

Words & Music by
BENJ PASEK & JUSTIN PAUL
Book by TIMOTHY ALLEN MCDONALD
Directed & Choreographed by
MK LAWSON

Linda Gross Theater

October 20 – November 18, 2018


With music from the Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award-winning team of Pasek and Paul and a book by the writer who brought you Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka and The Musical Adven­tures of Flat Stanley comes Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach, a fantastical musical for the whole family!

More Info

Instead of chopping down the old fruit tree like his aunties asked, James discovers a magic potion that makes an old peach grow to an enormous size. After finding a door to climb inside, James meets a group of outrageous oversized insects who’ve made the peach their home. James and his newfound friends decide it’s time to leave the Aunties, and we follow them as they roll their peach into the ocean and embark on a fantastic voyage that lands them on top of the Empire State Building.

Recommended for ages 5+ but welcomes children of all ages.

Relaxed Performances

We currently hold two Relaxed Performances for each Atlantic for Kids productions: one for public school groups and one for the general public. Relaxed Performances are events designed with accommodations for people—including those with autism, sensory or communication disorders, or developmental differences—who would benefit from a more relaxed theater-going environment.

The relaxed performances for Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach were held on November 2 and 3, 2018.
