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.

In 2017, San Francisco Shakespeare Festival celebrates 35 years as the Bay Area’s acclaimed provider of free Shakespeare performances with a production of “Hamlet”. The play speaks strongly about disenfranchisement, frustration, and the need for action during troubled times. Hamlet is torn between revenging his father’s murder and going along quietly with the new regime. He shares his inner turmoil in a series of soliloquies which have become familiar all over the world.
Audiences can further their enjoyment of this production by attending a fun and informative 15-minute Green Show, 30 minutes before the performance.
No tickets or reservations are needed for these complimentary shows.
