Martinsville's community theatre company, the Merry MAC Players, presents "James and the Giant Peach" based on the book by Roald Dahl, daramatized by Richard R. George. This non-musical youth production will feature a cast of 21 talented young people.
A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insect friends! An incredible journey!
This amazing adventure of James Henry Trotter will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape. Roald Dahl's story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises. You will see James (as he cleverly gets the Peach out of danger), the wise Old-Green-Grasshopper, and the pessimistic Earthworm. You will also see James' mean Aunt Spiker and cruel Aunt Sponge. The action is tied together by the Narrator, a storyteller, motivator, emcee and audience friend.
Performances will be December 6-15 at the historic Depot Theatre in Martinsville. Show times are 7:30 pm on Dec. 6, 7, 13 & 14 and 2:30 pm on Dec. 7, 8 & 15.
