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!

A quick listen to their music and you realize the multi-platinum Smash Mouth is a 60s influenced garage band with a keen pop sensibility that maintains a timeless quality, a style they have created and that is all their own.
