Bangor, ME – Penobscot Theatre Company is now registering youths aged 4-14 for its upcoming Dramatic Academy production of James and the Giant Peach. Classes will begin March 24 and run every Tuesday and Thursday until May 28t. The students will perform James and the Giant Peach at the historic Bangor Opera House on May 29, 30 and 31. Registration will close March 24.
In this lively adaptation of the classic story by Roald Dahl, James escapes the clutches of his evil aunties via a giant, magical peach and some wily insect friends. Together they journey across the countryside, over the ocean, to the outer limits of the imagination in a heartwarming story of teamwork and triumph!
“James and the Giant Peach is the final Dramatic Academy program of the school year and I couldn’t think of a better way to finish our tremendous season!” said Amy Roeder, Penobscot Theatre Company’s director of education. The beloved story was dramatized by Richard R. George from the novel by Roald Dahl and is produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois. Peach follows the successful Dramatic Academy productions of Frankenstein in the fall and Holes this winter.
