James and the Giant Peach, Jr.
Auburn Ave. Theater, 10 Auburn Avenue

Brought to life on stage by the AveKids Theater camp participants, James & The Giant Peach will delight all ages. 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, which 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.
