Based on the book, "James and the Giant Peach" by Roald Dahl.

Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR.

Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale of a boy, his insect friends and their amazing journey across the ocean on a giant piece of fruit. 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. Great for all ages, critics rave James and the Giant Peach is a “master-peach”!

Now enjoying everything he ever desire— fame, money and the affection of his beloved Audrey— Seymour must decide if he can sacrifice it all in order to save the world from this alien plant and its sinister spores. With the world seemingly spinning out of control with various wars, natural disasters, budget crises, economic strife, and political upheaval, what better time to see an end of the world satire complete with a Motown style score and a giant carnivorous plant from outer space?

The Pursuit of Equal Education

Quiet Courage: The Pursuit of Equal Education

Is partially supported by funding from the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

In the early 1900s, segregation and discrimination were an ongoing battle for the black community around the country. Hidden amongst the facade of “separate but equal” injustices against blacks perpetrated America. But unforeseen, a hero was birthed in the small town of Pulaski, Virginia who would make his life’s work a fight against racial discrimination. Quiet Courage is the story of Chauncey Harmon, Sr. and his fight for the equalization of salaries and facilities for African Americans. It is the story of one man’s journey and the path he helped lay for equal rights in the community in which he was raised and later served.
