BLOOMFIELD, NJ - NiCori Studios and Productions Presents The NiCori Teen Performance Ensemble in Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach.  The production is directed by Corinna Sowers Adler, musically Directed by Deborah Martin and features choreography by Lisa Grimes.

It tells the story of a boy named James who, when sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, 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.  A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure!

James and the Giant Peach has words and Music by the Golden Globe winning team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.  Book by Timothy Allen McDonald, which is based on the book “James and the Giant Peach” by Roald Dahl.  Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach TYA Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.  www.MTIShows.com
