James and the Giant Peach

James and the Giant Peach is a whimsical and magical journey of one boy out to change his life and find a real family.

The University of Wisconsin La Crosse Department of Theatre and Dance proudly presents James and the Giant Peach, a fun and magical musical perfect for the whole family. James and the Giant Peach will show April 5-6 & 11-13 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees on April 7 & 14 at 2:00 p.m. in the Toland Theatre, Lowe Center for the Arts on the UWL campus (333 N. 16th Street, La Crosse).

Based on Roald Dahl’s book of the same name, James and the Giant Peach is a whimsical and magical journey of one boy out to change his life and find a real family. After discovering a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach, James climbs inside and meets a group of outrageous oversized insects who’ve made the peach their home. James and his new friends roll their peach into the ocean and embark on a fantastic voyage forcing them to face hunger, sharks, and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, they learn to work together as a family. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and curiously quirky characters, James and the Giant Peach is a musical for the whole family to enjoy.
