Madrona Children’s Theatre (MCT) Presents Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach
March 15 – 18 at Mountlake Terrace High School

Edmonds, WA – For over 25 years MCT has entertained thousands in the local community. This year they are proud to present the production of James and the Giant Peach.

James and the Giant Peach is a magical musical full of amazing adventure and unexpected friends, written by beloved author Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda). Come join MCT’s production of a young orphan named James who accidentally drops magic crystals by an old peach tree. Strange things start to happen and James soon discovers a magical world full of friendly insects and learns that love and family can be found in unexpected and unusual places.

“You got something notable so give me something quotable!” says character Ida Walters. James and the Giant Peach is clearly a notable story. With fascinating Roald Dahl characters and beautiful music from Tony Award winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, this is a sure hit for everyone in the family. “I was thrilled to be asked to return to Madrona Children’s Theatre again this year. It is an exceptional experience being able to visualize such a large scale production and have the ability to bring it to life. The beautiful MTHS Theatre, enormous 30-piece live orchestra, intricate costumes, professional quality sets, and 100 plus students turn a school musical into an extravaganza. It is a uniquely challenging and enormously fun undertaking,” says Director Dorothy Pierce, who is an integral part of the Education program for Driftwood Theater in Edmonds.

Over 25 years the Madrona Children’s Theatre (MCT) has provided students in 4th through 8th grade an authentic theatre experience by producing a full-scale musical each spring, complete with a live orchestra and professional direction. A silent auction is hosted in the lobby during each performance. Proceeds from the auction fund MCT’s productions and scholarship programs.
