A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, where a boy and his insect friends take an amazing journey across the ocean.

JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH JR. runs June 3, 2017 through July 8, 2017.

Hurst, Texas, May 18, 2017- Artisan Children’s Theater proudly presents JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH JR. at its 148 seat Second Stage facility. The theater is located at 444 East Pipeline Road in Hurst. The show runs Saturday, June 3, 2017 through Saturday, July 8, 2017. Performances are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 10:00am and 12:00pm. No performance July 4.

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. 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.

JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH JR. will be interpreted for the hearing impaired on June 3 at 12:00pm.
