KGHS presents ‘Giant Peach’

King George High School’s Theater Department is presenting “James and the Giant Peach,” tonight (Jan. 30) through Feb. 2.

The play is based on the classic story of a young English orphan named James who enters a gigantic, magical peach. He has a wild and surreal cross-world adventure with six human-like insects.

The show starts at 7 each night, and the cost is $6, with children six and under free. A dinner will be offered at 5:30 nightly before the show. Menu choices include cheeseburger, hamburger, chicken nuggets, pizza roll and hot dog, ranging from $6 to $7.

The department will offer a pre-show at 6 p.m. which features performances by all the bugs. Those in attendance will be able to meet the characters of Centipede, Earthworm, Grasshopper, Spider, Ladybug, Glowworm and Silkworm.

During intermission, there will be games and activities for kids. Members of the Art Club will paint faces and those in the Theater Department will sell luminaries to benefit this year’s charity project, the Win 4 Wesley team.
