LWC Theatre to present James and the Giant Peach
The Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program will present the classic children's story James and the Giant Peach on Thursday, November 7, 2019, and Friday, November 8, 2019.
This magical musical adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic is directed by LWC Assistant to the Director of Theatre Jeremy Cloyd, and will be performed at 7pmCT each night in V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY. For ticket information, contact Robert Brock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
"This is one of the most exciting shows I've been able to direct at LWC," says Director Jeremy Cloyd. "It's an incredible opportunity to get to tell a classic story to audiences of all ages in a way that each person will find fun and inspiring."
The play is performed as part of the program's long-standing tradition of producing at least one children's play each year. Jeremy Cloyd says, "the LWC Children's Theatre program has been serving area students since its creation. Whether they come to campus and see the show or we take the show to them, it's important to us not only to expose LWC students to quality theatre but also students all over the Southcentral Kentucky region."
The play is not only being presented in these two public performances but will also be performed for over 1,600 students from six different elementary schools. Cloyd tells us that "this is the really unbelievable thing about producing theatre for young audiences here at LWC. We get to perform for so many students throughout the region right here on in Columbia."
