Tickets are now on sale for the Junior School drama production of James & The Giant Peach JR. taking place on April 25, 26 and 27. They are $15 and available at www.cds.on.ca/tickets.
Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl'sJames and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery will surely be a favourite for our CDS community.
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way. During this journey, James learns the true definition of family and finds his place in the world.
With music by Oscar, Grammy, Tony, and Golden Globe Award-winning songwriters Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, this show will delight audiences of all ages!
