There, 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.
Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach, Jr. features a talented cast of forty students between the ages of seven and fourteen.
