The Nolte Academy School of Performing Arts will be presenting their production of the Roald Dahl classic turned musical, James And The Giant Peach. Performances will be this weekend, August 18-20, at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts, 1301 5th St, Coralville, Iowa 52241.

A description of the show can be found on the Facebook event page:

Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.

Tickets for the show are: Adults: $26, Student: $21, Senior: $21, Child: $14.

Performances are: Aug 18th - 7:00PM, Aug 19th - 2:00 PM & 7:00 PM, Aug 20th - 2:00 PM, and can be purchased HERE.
