The Snow College theatre department is performing a theatrical rendition of Roald Dahl’s classic, James and the Giant Peach.
This classic story is told from the perspective of James, an orphaned young British boy living with his cruel aunts. James finds a way out of his dismal life by discovering an enchanted giant peach. He is guided by his new friends, a group of talking giant insects, and together, they set sail for New York City on the floating peach.
Shelby Cameron, a member of the ensemble, said that the performance is “a play that will bring you back to the marvelous wonders of childhood. James and the Giant Peach is a show that is beyond fun to be a part of and would be even more fun to watch. Come and see James along with the world wise green grasshopper retell the fantastic story of how they and their friends travelled in a giant peach to the Big Apple.”
The cast is led by Nicole McGuire, playing James, the main character, AneUnhu Gwatizdo as the Grasshopper, Annalyse Davis as the Lady Bug, Dakota Davis as the Earthworm, Josiah Hancock as the Centipede, and Liany Bird as the Spider. The ensemble includes Shelby Cameron, Blake Verdel, Hannah Romney, Rebecca Reed, Dean Bressier, Conner Kunz, and Trent Hannah.
The play begins showing April 12 and runs through April 15. Tickets can be picked up in the Eccles Center or bought online at Snow.edu. Student tickets are $2 with a student I.D.
