SALISBURY, N.C. (WBTV) - Piedmont Players is presenting the play James and The Giant Peach at the Norvell Theater in Salisbury.

James and The Giant Peach is by Roald Dahl, adapted for the stage by Richard R. George. Directed by Keaton Brower, James and The Giant Peach  tells 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.
