director’s notes I am overjoyed to be returning to direct for Festival Players for Kids. As I reflect upon the process, I am amazed with the talent I have before me. Everyone, from the cast, crew, and production members have worked so incredibly hard to present this wonderful show. It is truly an honour to be working alongside such a stellar theatre community. I am so pleased to present to you James and the Giant Peach with Festival Players for Kids. This is a tale of friendship, perseverance, and the determination to create your own story. Roald Dahl has a way of taking the powerful moral of a story and wrapping it up in quirky characters and unlikely plot turns that keep you hanging on the edge of your seat, while secretly reminding you of what a simple lesson can truly mean. This cast has been such a privilege to direct. Each and every one of them has brought so many ideas into rehearsal. Our rehearsal process focused a great deal on moments. On finding the small details of everyday that connect us as friends and that lead us on our incredible journeys. These kids have truly brought these characters to life and have made the story that Roald Dahl wrote over 50 years ago seem relevant and alive. I hope all these kids can see this process as the beginnings of building their own dreams. I hope you all enjoy the show, and are able to be brought back to the time of being a child seeking adventure. I believe we all can be reminded of the lesson of this story; that we have the power to create our realities. All you have to do is dream. “Well, maybe it started that way as a dream, but doesn’t everything. Those buildings. These lights. This whole city. Somebody had to dream about it first. And maybe that is what I did. I dreamed about coming here, but then I did it.” - James and the Giant Peach Mhairi Berg Director

Synopsis Four-year-old James Henry Trotter lives with his loving parents in a beautiful cottage by the sea in the south of England, until his parents are killed by an escaped rhinoceros during a shopping trip in London. As a result, James is forced to live with his two cruel aunts, Spiker and Sponge, in a run-down house on a high, desolate hill near the  White Cliffs of Dover. For four years, James is treated as a drudge, forced to do hard labor, beaten for hardly any reason, improperly fed, and forced to sleep on bare floorboards in the attic. One summer afternoon, after a particularly upsetting altercation with his aunts, James stumbles across a mysterious stranger, who gives him magic green “crocodile tongues” which, when drunk with water, will bring him happiness and great adventures. On the way to the house, James spills the crocodile tongues onto a bar-

ren peach  tree, which then produces a single peach that quickly grows to nearly the size of a house. The next day, the aunts sell tickets to neighbors and tourists to see the giant peach while James watches from the window of his room in which he is locked up, to prevent him from getting in the way of his aunts’ business. When night comes, the aunts release James and send him to collect rubbish discarded by the crowd. James goes to take a closer look at the giant peach, but he discovers a tunnel, which leads to a secret room inside the peach’s seed, inhabited by a rag-tag band of human-sized, talking invertebrates (an old green  grasshopper,  centipede,  earthworm, spider, ladybug, and a silkworm), also transformed by the magic of the crocodile tongues given him earlier. These bugs then become James’ companions in his adventure, and the companionship is prompted by a common hatred of the aunts.. Everyone inside the peach feels it rolling over the aunts and bursts out cheering. It rolls through villages, houses, and  a famous chocolate factory  before falling off the cliffs of Dover into the sea. James and the bugs emerge to find themselves floating in the sea but manage to sustain themselves on the delicious flesh of the peach. Hours later, near the Azores, the peach is surrounded by  sharks. Using the Earthworm as bait, James and the others of the peach lure five hundred seagulls to the peach from the nearby islands, which they tie to the broken stem as a source of flight.

Now airborne, the peach crosses the Atlantic Ocean. Thereafter, James and the bugs approach New York City; whereupon the military, police, fire department, and rescue services are all called, and people flee to air raid shelters and subway stations, believing the city is about to be destroyed. A huge passenger jet flies past the giant peach and severs the silken strings connecting the seagulls to the peach, which is then impaled upon the tip of the  Empire State Building. The peo-

ple on the 86th floor at first believe the inhabitants of the giant peach to be monsters or extraterrestrials; but when James appears and explains his story, the people hail James and his friends as heroes. The remains of the giant peach are brought down to the streets, where it is consumed by the town’s children, and its seed is established as a mansion in Central Park, where James lives, while his friends establish careers in the human world. In conclusion, James is said to have written the preceding story.
