Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach
Atlantic Theater Company kicked off its Atlantic For Kids 2018-2019 season with a world premiere production of Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach.
Billed as "a fantastical musical for the whole family," the production is directed and choreographed by MK Lawson and features a book by Timothy Allen McDonaldn and a score by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, the multi-award-winning songwriting duo behind such hits as Dear Evan Hansen, A Christmas Story: The Musical, "La La Land," and "The Greatest Showman."

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.
