James and the
Directed by Kylie Larson
From the book by Roald Dahl
Dramatized by Richard R. George
Produced by special arrangement with
THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING CO. of Woodstock, Ill.
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 come to a suitably sticky end. The action is tied together by the Narrator, a storyteller, motivator, emcee and audience friend. Join us on this exciting, peachy adventure!
The mission of MCT is to spark imaginations by presenting professional quality children’s theatre on a consistent basis. We have been staging a variety of artistic performances in Austin since 1975. We believe our artists and performers deserve to have a platform from which they can share their creative and innovative works. This production’s profits will go towards improvements of our stage, such as curtain repairs, sound equipment and new lighting.
So thank you! You've helped us get closer to our goals today.
