BLOOMFIELD, NJ - Tickets for NiCori Studios production of James and the Giant Peach at the Westminster Arts Center in Bloomfield are on sale now. Performances are January 27 at 8 p.m., January 28 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and January 29 at 2 p.m.

Based on Roald Dahl's book of the same name, the story follows James, who, 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.
