Parent and Participant Meeting:

This meeting will be held in person at THE ZIEGFELD THEATER on August 29th from 4-5:30 PM. We will go over program and production details, what to expect, and answer questions. This meeting is specific to the KIDS program (ages 8-12 yrs) ONLY. The MINIS program (ages 5-7 yrs) have their own parent meeting on their first day on 9/12 at THE ZIEGFELD ARTS ACADEMY

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.
