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 that rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. With a collection of singing insects along for the ride, they face hunger, sharks, and plenty of disagreements along the way. Based on the beloved and quirky story, Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach is a charming and clever new take on the family classic. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen, A Christmas Story, La La Land) and a witty book, join James and the gang in this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery.
Music by Stephen Flaherty * Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens * Licensed by Music Theatre International
The incomparably imaginative creators of Seussical, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, bring one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved tales to life in The Emperor’s New Clothes. Fourteen-year-old Emperor Marcus the Third is nervous to take the throne. Deciding that he can only gain confidence by dressing in the finest attire, Marcus commands his Royal Clothesmaker to fashion him in the most royal wardrobe. Taking advantage of Marcus’ uncertainty and immaturity, a Swindler promises to make magic clothes that are “invisible to fools, liars, and anyone you should ignore,” for a large and hefty price. Only Arno, the simple-hearted mop boy, can help Marcus out of this royal mess and teach him an important lesson about outward appearance.
