James and the Giant Peach

Evenings 7:30pm - Sunday Matinee at 3pm

Jenny Wiley Theatre Pikeville Mainstage: 218 Second Street Pikeville, KY 41501
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop sown their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion which 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 over-sized personalities. But after the peach 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. JWT's Footlights Theatre presents this much-loved story by the creator of Matilda, Roald Dahl. Great for the entire family!
