Thanks to our Student Matinees Sponsor:

Adapted from Roald Dahl’s novel by Richard R. George

From the author who brought you Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, comes a fantastic story of imagination. James, an orphan, is sent to live with his horrible aunts, Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker. His remarkable adventure begins when he finds an ENORMOUS peach in their yard filled with scores of talking insects! Little does he know that this peach and its passengers will take him on a journey across the globe and bring him fame and fortune beyond his wildest dreams.
