James and the Giant Peach at the Rhode Center for the Arts

James and the Giant Peach

James and the Giant Peach y Roald Dahl. Dramatized by Richard R. George
Mar 2/13 to Mar 10/13

A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insects and an incredible journey! 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. This family favorite will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape.
