Marking Roald Dahl's Centenary Year

James and the Giant Peach comes to Wimbledon

To celebrate Roald Dahl’s centenary year in 2016, Polka in Wimbledon is bringing back James and the Giant Peach, based on one of Dahl’s most popular books.

With a script by Olivier-Award nominated children’s playwright David Wood, the production captures the playful spirit of Dahl and brings his eccentric characters bursting to life, engaging directly with a young audience.

Running from 27 May – 14 August at Polka Theatre on Wimbledon Broadway, James and the Giant Peach is created for ages 5 – 7.

In a story that spans the English countryside and a journey over the ocean all the way to New York City, this show makes use of clever staging, puppetry and songs to create a journey that is said to be both stunning and funny.

James and the Giant Peach is directed by Roman Stefanski, Associate Director at Polka. Design is by Keith Baker, with lighting by Jim Simmons. Music is by Olly Fox.
