adapted for stage by David Wood from the book by Roald Dahl

October 30-November 10 - 2024
B. Iden Payne Theatre

University of Texas at Austin

In this delightful stage adaptation, Roald Dahl’s classic tale is faithfully told by James himself along with the insect characters – Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybird and Earthworm. The play begins at the end of the story, when James and his friends are living in the giant peach stone in Central Park, New York. 

Through music, song, and choreography the story is told with the help of the insects and an ensemble of actors who physically recreate the journey of James and the Giant Peach!
