Roald Dahl’s very first children’s book James and the Giant Peach is at the Theatre Royal Nottingham from April 10-14.

This classic book, one of the most popular stories for children, tells the tale of James, a lonely young boy who lives with Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, the most revolting aunts in England.

They make him work and slave 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, the most incredible things start to happen and James embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with the most amazing group of characters you could ever meet!

The Birmingham Stage Company are famous for their acclaimed productions of Roald Dahl stories. In their 20-year history they have staged six Roald Dahl books and many other children’s stories including The Jungle Book and Horrible Histories. All have been loved and praised by audiences and critics alike.

James and the Giant Peach, adapted by David Wood will be directed by Nikolai Foster.

It is a fruit-filled, whizz-popping entertainment for kids aged four-plus and all the family.
