James and the Giant Peach (TYA Edition)
Show Dates: November 6, 7 & 8
Tech Week: November 1 through 5
Target Age: 12 to 15+ (ages outside this range will be considered based on ability and experience)
Description: When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down 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 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.
A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, the creative possibilities with James And The Giant Peach are endless. Actors will love playing the outlandish characters and performing brand new material from one of Broadway's hottest duos.
James and the Giant Peach is not a Junior show and will run approximately 100 minutes.

Description: It's November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys' night of debauchery, partying and maybe a little trouble. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion.
Studded with impressive songs, an unexpected love affair, and a genuine and charming soul, Dogfight is a perfect way to show off your strong male talent and a unique opportunity for theatres looking to challenge and inspire their audiences.
Dogfight is a very mature show with frequent use of profanity and mature content. Parental consent is REQUIRED.
