Together with Grasshopper, Ladybug, Centipede, Spider and Earthworm, James embarks on an extraordinary adventure, sailing across the sea to distant lands.

Words and music by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, book by Timothy Allen McDonald, based on the Book James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. Directed by Carole Higgins, choreographed by Kayla Dunbar and Musical Directed by Steven Greenfield. Featuring: Patti Allan, Scott Bellis, Kaylee Harwood, Julian Lokash, Makayla Moore, Alex Rose, Deb Williams and Jonathan Winsby.
