Family musical theater performed by local youth! Roald Dahl’s popular children’s tale James and the Giant Peach to open the 2017-2018 season. The adventure-filled musical theater production features songs written by the Oscar(R), Golden Globe(R), and Tony Award(R)- winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
Young orphan James Henry Trotter lives, unfortunately, with his two horrid aunts, in a place as remote as remote can be. Through a series of interesting events, James comes into possession of a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach bigger than his house. His curiosity launches him on a journey of equally enormous proportions as his Giant Peach rolls, floats, and soars around the globe.
$7-$18; youth, senior discounts.

The transition to middle school is a big one. Just getting to school can be a new and daunting task for students — catching buses, trains, and even biking to school on their own. To help students understand traffic rules, pedestrian laws and more, the Bay Area Children’s Theater is bringing transportation to life with a performance of skits and songs that include ‘Taggin’ On,’ which teaches students how to use the Clipper Card, and ‘Respect the Bus,’ which covers public transportation etiquette and safety.
When: Wednesday, Sept. 20 / 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.
Where: Marina MS / 3500 Fillmore St.
