(MUSICAL) – After his parents are killed by a stampeding rhino, James Trotter spends time in an orphanage before being sent to the only family he has left, his aunts Spiker and Sponge. His aunts are cruel and torment poor James mercilessly. Urged by the mysterious Ladahlord, James creates a magical potion in an effort to change his situation. But the magic gets away from him, and instead he creates a giant peach and human-sized insects. The aunts see a way to make money from this impressive fruit. However, the insects decide they have to escape, and with James, they cut the peach from the tree–and their adventure begins.
Based on Roald Dahl’s book of the same name.
