James and the Giant Peach

Our Priory Youth Theatre returns with David Wood's adaption of Roald Dahl's classic tale. Directed by Callum Roberts & Hannah Farquharson, James and the Giant Peach sees the classic tale faithfully told by James himself and 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.

A tour guide brings a party of tourists (the audience) to see this major attraction, and James and his friends tell the story of how they came to live in New York. The insects play the other roles, like James’s cruel Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, and the epic journey across the Atlantic is acted out with live action, puppetry and storytelling.
