Bottle Tree Productions Youth Musical Theatre Class presents:
James and the Giant Peach JR
Words and Music by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul
Book by Timothy Allen McDonald
Based on the book James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, James and the Giant Peach JR is a fantastical tale of a boy, his insect friends, and their amazing journey across the ocean on a giant piece of fruit. Featuring music and lyrics by the Tony and Academy Award-winning songwriters Justin Paul and Benj Pasek and book by Timothy Allen McDonald, James and the Giant Peach JR is based on the beloved book by Roald Dahl and tells the story of a young orphaned child who finds a loving family in a most peculiar way. Sent by his mean, conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, James discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous peach occupied by some not-so-normal characters. From the center of the gigantic fruit, James and the unlikely crew launch a journey of enormous proportions. Together they discover that while we are all born into a family, we then go on to create a family of our own.
“James is a child put in a remarkable situation, and with the help and support of some new friends he is able to achieve great things. Similarly, these Bottle Tree Productions students are working together in extraordinary ways to present this musical. We know their show is going to be great. Break a leg guys!” says Benj Pasek.
James and the Giant Peach JR. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. 421 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019 Phone: 212-541-4684 Fax: 212-397-4684
