James and the Giant Peach

  • Berkeley Playhouse 2640 College Avenue Berkeley, CA, 94704 United States (map)

From the mind of one of our greatest storytellers—and the composers behind Dear Evan Hansen and The Greatest Showman—comes this season’s most oversized, fantastical, magical, must-see musical for the entire family!

Based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), this all-new musical adventure is sure to be this season’s biggest hit! Sent to chop down an old fruit tree by his cruel and devious aunts, young James discovers a magic potion that turns an ordinary peach into a massive, oversized GIANT—and a doorway into a land where anything is possible. Befriending talking grasshoppers and singing ladybugs, James and friends plan an escape—only to discover that leaving one foe behind can bring about new challenges.

From today’s hottest Oscar and Tony-winning team Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, don’t miss this lively and heartfelt adventure of a small boy—and a band of merry insects—on a musical journey of epic proportions!
