James and the Giant Peach Minis

We are so excited to announce open enrollment for

James and the Giant Peach Jr! 

Join us this fall!


Parent and Participant Meeting:

This meeting will be held in person at THE ZIEGFELD ARTS ACADEMY on September 12th. We will go over program and production details, what to expect, and answer questions.

A mandatory parent committee meeting will be held on 9/21 at The Ziegfeld Arts Academy at 5:30 PM. More information to follow.

Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale.  Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.

The possibilities for creative costuming and puppetry abound, and young actors will love playing the outlandish and larger-than-life human and insect characters.
