DMR ADVENTURES will present our Fall Broadway Adventure program, starring a cast of 33 young adults, ages 7-16, from Charlottesville and the surrounding areas.

Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl’s JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, JR. is a brand new take on this “masterpeach” of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.
Tickets will go on sale beginning Sept. 3!
