Cazenovia’s Jr. High Drama Club to Embark on a
“Fruit-full” adventure with “James and the Giant Peach JR.” November 1-3
The Cazenovia Jr. High Drama Club will present its “master-peach,” a production of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach JR. beginning on November 1. A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, James and the Giant Peach JR. is a fantastical tale of a boy, his insect friends, and their amazing journey across the ocean on a giant piece of fruit.
Featuring music and lyrics by the Tony-nominated songwriters Justin Paul and Benj Pasek and book by Timothy Allen McDonald, James and the Giant Peach JR. tells the story of a young orphaned child who finds a loving family in a most peculiar way. Sent by his mean, conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, James discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous peach occupied by some not-so-normal characters. From the center of the gigantic fruit, James and the unlikely crew launch a journey of enormous proportions. Together they discover that while we are all born into a family, we then go on to create a family of our own.
Cazenovia’s Jr. High Drama Club will present James and the Giant Peach JR. on Thursday, November 1 at 4:30 p.m., Friday, November 2 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, November 3 at 2:00 p.m. in Cazenovia’s High School Auditorium.
