James and the Giant Peach – adapted for the stage by David Wood from the book by Roald Dahl
Produced by Maureen & Garth Holloway | Directed by Paula Worley
Hundreds of children from schools throughout Northumberland County came to Victoria Hall to see James and the Giant Peach, and the Saturday Matinée was sold out to parents, neighbours and friends.
James lives with the most revolting aunts in England. They make him work and never let him play with other children. Then one day he meets a mystical old man who gives him a bag that contains the strongest magic the world has ever known. When James spills the bag near an old peach tree, incredible things start to happen – and James embarks on the adventure of a lifetime.
After the show, the children on the buses “Booed” the actresses who played the Aunts as they walked along King Street!
