SYNOPSIS
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach... and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James' quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building.

WELCOME NOTE
To say we are beyond excited to be back on stage is an understatement! The year did not come without its extreme challenges, but we all rose to the occasion and can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on. Art Education is even more vital during these challenging times: it helps reinforce how important teamwork and community is, it helps develop a variety of social skills, it helps children take risks and gently pushes them outside their comfort zones. We truly hope you have seen a positive change in your children over the course of this year. Our raison d’être at the Academy is to nurture the love of Arts for the next generation, strengthen our students sense of self-worth and to enjoy the countless benefits in expressing themselves through performance.

We want to thank you, the parents, for accommodating our rehearsal schedules and helping your children prepare. We could not have done it without you! We have been working tirelessly all year to bring these shows to you and look forward to enjoying many more entertaining occasions together in the future.

Enjoy the show!
Liana Wiener, Director of the Academy
