Cardboard Playhouse Presents "James and the Giant Peach Jr"

Cardboard Playhouse and South Broadway Cultural Center present a fantasy play taken from the highly popular Roald Dahl's quirky story, James and the Giant Peach on two weekends in mid-September.

"James and the Giant Peach JR" is a "masterpeach" of a tale that features a cleverly tuneful score and witty dialog that will charm people of all ages.

Performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, September 16 and 17, at 7pm, and Sunday, September 18 at 2pm. The play repeats on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 22, 23 and 24 at the same times.

James, an English orphan, is asked by his cruel aunts with whom he lives to chop down an old fruit tree on their property, and while doing so he discovers a magic potion that grows a giant peach! He and the peach roll into the ocean and begin their fantastic voyage, which includes singing insects, sharks, and hunger, as well as courage, self-discovery, and lots of disagreements along the way.

The talented young actors performing on the stage of the John Lewis Theatre are the core of Cardboard Playhouse Theatre Company, a non-profit formed December 2004. Cardboard Playhouse prides itself on being one of the only children's theatre companies in Albuquerque that casts children on their ability to perform, not on their ability to pay. Cardboard Playhouse Theatre Company keeps itself viable by generating revenue through ticket sales and grants. Cardboard Playhouse Theatre Company was voted by the readers and editors of Albuquerque The Magazine as one of the top 5 Theatre Companies in Albuquerque.

Reserved seating tickets are $10 each and are available at
