James and the Giant Peach begins May 3

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s beloved book, James and the Giant Peach, the Lone Star College-North Harris Theatre Department is transforming the story into a magical theatrical experience. The play will run May 3 through May 8, with an 8 p.m. performance each night in the Arena Theater (ACAD-142), of the college's Academic Building.

In the play, young orphan James is sent to live with his horrible Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker. Life is hard until a mysterious stranger arrives. Suddenly, magic abounds and James finds an enormous peach growing in his yard, containing some very unusual guests. Following the discovery, his remarkable adventure begins.
