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.

"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!
