The Downtown Cabaret Children’s Company Presents:

James and the Giant Peach


Bridgeport’s award winning Downtown Cabaret Theatre (DCT) Children’s Company continues its 40th anniversary season with James and the Giant Peach. Performances run:

Opening Weekend: February 27 & 28 at 12noon

March 5 – April 3, Saturdays & Sundays at 12noon & 2:30pm

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.

Roald Dahl’s James And The Giant Peach is now a Theatre for Young Audiences musical for the whole family to enjoy! Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by the TONY Award-nominated team of Pasek and Paul (Dogfight and A Christmas Story the Musical) and a curiously quirky book by Timothy Allen McDonald (Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, The Musical Adventures Of Flat Stanley), critics rave James And The Giant Peach is a “masterpeach!”
