Roald Dahl’s beloved classic takes the stage in a new musical. One boy, two awful aunts, five larger-than-life insects, and a giant peach! What happens when magic crystals cause a withered old tree to create the largest and most magnificent peach ever seen? Luckily, a boy named James and a handful of bugs just happen to be nearby when the peach finally snaps free of its stem, and it sweeps them along on a marvelous adventure. From Tony-nominated creators Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

"6 cool things about 'James and the Giant Peach'" –Amy Wang, The Oregonian
"There really is magic in the air, on and behind the stage." –Ruth Plourde, NW Kids
"A huge and moving tribute to contemporary musicals....It offers the sweet view that Dahl wanted us to honor through his stories, a view that shines from the young actor and onto the audience: our children are smarter and more sophisticated than us and that’s a priceless dream come true."
OCT invites several illustrators and comic artists to sketch the show from the audience. Check out their work here!
