James and the Giant Peach- Sensory Friendly @ Elm Street Cultural Arts Village
Jul 11 @ 10:00 am
James and the Giant Peach- Sensory Friendly @ Elm Street Cultural Arts Village

Based on the story by Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach follows a boy on an epic journey. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that 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.

Sensory accommodations are balanced with preserving the genuine experience desired by all children and families.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this performance, please call 678.494.4251 or email siobhan@elmstreetarts.org.
