TFAC and Tryon Little Theater are working together to produce the smash-hit summer musical James and the Giant Peach.

Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach is now a musical for the whole family to enjoy! Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by the Tony Award-winning team of Pasek and Paul (Dear Evan Hansen, La La Land, Greatest Showman, Dogfight and A Christmas Story the Musical).

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous peach — and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit 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 they land on the Empire State Building.

Don't miss the fun Thursday, July 19-Saturday, July 21 at 7:30pm or Sunday, July 22 at 3pm. On Wednesday, July 18, TYST kicks off in style at 6pm with a special gala featuring themed cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and a limited seating preview performance.
