Good Company Theater is excited to present its next production, James and the Giant Peach. Adapted for the stage from Roald Dahl’s children’s classic of the same name, the play is directed by Christopher Bushey. Musical director Rick Handville has incorporated several new wonderful and whimsical songs by Denny Moon.
James Henry Trotter, played by Jake Scotto, is a young boy who lives with his parents in England. On James’ birthday they plan to go to New York City and visit the Empire State building, but circumstances change. Expect some major surprises as James escapes the house of his wicked, greedy aunts, Sponge and Spiker, and rides off in a magical giant peach with new friends: a grasshopper (Steve O’Brien); a spider (Becky Sears); a lady bug (Jacqueline Lasry); a centipede (Enrico DiGiacomo); a mysterious, magical old man (Cliff Gibson); and an earthworm (Bob King). The cast also includes a chorus of young teens who will take on various roles.
The show will take place at South Congregational Church, 242 Salmon Brook Street on March 3, at 7 p.m.; March 4, at 2 and 7 p.m.; and March 5, at 2 p.m. Tickets will be available soon at and at Granby Pharmacy as well as at the door.
