James and the Giant Peach (18th – 30th Dec 2021)

Blue Orange Arts presents –

James and the Giant Peach
By Roald Dahl adapted by David Wood

After his parents are eaten by an escaped rhinoceros during a trip to London, James Henry Trotter is sent to live with his two gruesome aunts, Spiker and Sponge. They beat James, force him to sleep on the cold wooden floor and refuse to let him play with other children.

But when James accidentally spills a sack of tiny glowing-green crocodile tongues onto a peach tree, it bears the biggest fruit ever seen! Along with an array of enchanted creatures including The Centipede, The Old Green Grasshopper and Miss Spider, James embarks on an adventure that takes him over land and sea and even into the sky!

Pay What You Can

Blue Orange Arts is committed to accessibility of our in-house productions and as such we offer a ‘pay what you can’ performance for all of our shows.

‘Pay what you can’ is designed to help people access the theatre who could not necessarily do so otherwise, it is not ‘pay what you want’ and we ask, if you are able to afford it, that you help the charity continue its work by paying full price (or more if you are really generous!)
