FORT MORGAN, CO. 04/24/17. A tremendous peach… and a journey of enormous proportions. Join Morgan Community College Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) for a musical theatre performance of a fresh adaptation of Roald Dahl’s treasured novel, James and the Giant Peach.
This family friendly, one-night performance will be presented by the Phamaly Theatre Company on Saturday, May 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the Glenn Miller Auditorium at Fort Morgan High School (709 E. Riverview Ave.). The show is offered free to the public thanks to this year’s CACE sponsors.
The audience will find itself in an oversized peach with James and some human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities. Come and watch the group face hunger, sharks, and plenty of complications after their peach rolls into the ocean. And, consider James’ quick wit and creative thinking as the residents learn to live and work together.
Viewers will come away championing the kind-hearted and relishing hope in a world filled with obstacles in this story for the whole family.
Attendees are also invited to the FMHS National Honor Society’s Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser, taking place in the high school’s commons. Students will be serving dinner from 4:00-6:15 p.m. before the show. There is no cost to attend the dinner; however, donations will be collected on behalf of the Fort Morgan Humane Society.
The musical is directed by Bryce Alexander, and presented through special arrangements with Music Theatre International. For more information about the show or to preview a trailer, visit http://www.morgancc.edu/cace/cace-guest-performances/
