Posted February 27, 2014

The Idaho State University School of Performing arts will present “James and the Giant Peach” at 7:30 p.m. March 13, 14 and 15 in the Bistline Theatre inside the Stephens Performing Arts Center.

Based on the book written by Roald Dahl in 1961, the story of “James and the Giant Peach” has become a childhood classic in America. It tells the story of a little boy, James, who lives with his horrible aunts, Spiker and Sponge. James comes across an old man one day who gives him a package of glowing crocodile tongues near a barren peach tree that is supposed to bring him happiness and great adventures. James accidentally spills the tongues on his way back home. The tree produces a gigantic peach, which is only the beginning of the adventure for James.
