NLT Presents ‘James and the Giant Peach’ – Mississippi’s Top Community Newspaper

Natchez Little Theater is proud to present the musical adaptation of a classic tale based on Roald Dahl’s book “James and the Giant Peach”, with lyrics and music by Benj Pasek, Justin Paul and Timothy Allen McDonald.

The show will run from Thursday June 23 to Sunday June 26. Shows Thursday through Saturday begin at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.

James and the Giant Peach follows a young orphan boy named James (Amelie Harris) who is taken to live with his two excruciating aunts (Allene Kaiser and Pierce Beach), who abuse him and force him to perform grueling tasks. When a magical wizard named Ladahlord (Kristen Hogans) appears and offers James an escape, he tries his luck and is sent on a whirlwind adventure with five human-sized insects (Julie Emerick, Ragde Torres, Saylor Leake, Parker Claire Maxwell, and Addison Beach) who welcome her like family and teach her that home truly is where the heart is.
