THE fantastical world of Roald Dahl will be brought to life at Kingsley next month.
Kingsley Players Youth Theatre is to present Richard Georgeís adaptation of ‘James and the Giant Peach’ at Kingsley Community Centre on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, May 22, 24 and 25 at 7pm.
The story tells of James when he is forced to live with his mean aunts, Sponge and Spiker, after a terrible tragedy befalls his parents.
He meets a mysterious little old man, and here is where his life changes!
Join James as he meets the attention-seeking Centipede, the miserable Earthworm, the motherly Ladybird, the musical Grasshopper, the sassy Spider and the lazy Glow-Worm, and goes with them on a life-changing journey inside a giant peach!
Youth Theatre leader and production director, Jake Powell, said: ìAfter the success of ëArabian Nightsí last year, I am thrilled to be back directing this classic story. We have a fantastic cast of 12 children and young people, aged nine to fifteen, who bring this whimsical tale to life!î
Tickets cost £5 and can be booked in advance through the website www.kingsleyplayers.co.uk or by ringing the box office on 07724 892154
