Lipscomb Theatre presents
the Spring 2012 Family Theatre
James and the Giant Peach
From the book by Roald Dahl
Dramatized by Richard R. George
A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insect friends! An incredible journey! This amazing adventure of James Henry Trotter will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape. Roald Dahl's story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises.
With a set designed like a giant pop-up book, original dances choreographed by Lipscomb University and Tennessee State University dance instructor Peter Fields, and original songs composed by Nashville playwright and composer Jaz Dorsey, this show is sure to be a peachy adventure!
Dahl’s well-known characters the Old-Green-Grasshopper, the pessimistic Earthworm, mean Aunt Spiker and cruel Aunt Sponge are all included in this production, with the action tied together by the narrator. The audience will be allowed to take photos in front of the Giant Peach after the evening performances.
"James and the Giant Peach is a magical journey shared by cast and audience alike." —John Tilford, Champaign Park District, Champaign, Ill.
