James and the Giant Peach

#Main Info

"A little magic can take you a long way"

From the company that brought us the smash-hit, adored seasons of Fantastic Mr Fox, The Twits and George’s Marvellous Medicine comes this bold new theatrical adaption of one of the most loved children’s classic books. 

Join James and his collection of curious critters on an enchanting, great escape direct from his backyard, soaring high across the world, from Dover to New York and back again. 

Bursting with magic, mischief, and mayhem at every turn, James discovers that the best friendships arise from the most unexpected encounters and a little courage can take you a long way. 

You’ve read the book and seen the movie – now it’s time to experience this Dahlicious tale - from the wacky mind of the world’s No. 1 Storyteller - live on stage.
