Meet our James and the Giant Peach Cast!

January 22, 2018
By Miss Barbie

This spring, Abundant Life Christian School is pleased to present through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)
a new quirky spin on an American literary classic . . .


Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach is a musical for the whole family to enjoy . .
and even critics rave:   James and the Giant Peach is a "masterpeach!"


Show Synopsis: When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach... and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James' quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building.  


Did You Know? James and the Giant Peach is one of the many great works by the Tony, Oscar®, and Golden Globe Award-winning team of Pasek and Paul (The Greatest Showman; La La Land; Trolls; Dear Evan Hansen; A Christmas Story the Musical).

Congratulations to our cast!
We can’t wait to see you use your God-given talents
to entertain and delight us in April during two weekends of 
 performances:   April 20-21 & April 26-28.

Director: Pastor Sarah Karlen
