James and the Giant Peach, ( Sept 28 - Oct 27, 2013 ) a “fantasy adventure for children” by master storyteller Roald Dahl, was originally published in 1961. Dahl’s first-ever novel for children, the book enjoyed wild popularity and was made into a animated film by Disney in 1996.
This fall, NWCT will open our 2013-14 Season of Plays with a theatrical adaptation which, dramatized by playwright Richard R. George with direct input from the author, retains the original story’s richness of character. Co-directed by NWCT Artistic Director Sarah Jane Hardy, the play brings insect-protagonists to life through a combination of mask and puppetry designed by Co-Director John Ellingson (whose designs for last year’s The BFG earned him a 2013 Drammy Award for Outstanding Puppetry).
