SALISBURY — Piedmont Players is presenting “James & The Giant Peach” by Roald Dahl and adapted for the stage by Richard R. George.
Keaton Brower directs the story of a magical peach, an imprisoned boy and an incredible journey. When young James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers magic crocodile tongues that launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of a gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with oversized personalities! After the peach falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces danger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick with and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once the big peach lands in the Big Apple.
