MAY 20-22 ~ JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH Jr

Schoolhouse Arts Center is proud to present a fun and adventurous musical JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH Jr!

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way. Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is sure to be a family favorite!

Performances will be May 20 & 21 at 7:00 pm and May 21 & 22 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students & seniors and $5 for children under 5 years.


Help Us Upgrade Our Theater Lighting System

We need help raising funds to update our theater lighting system. Our current system is very outdated and parts are no longer manufactured for the system. We are fundraising to upgrade to digital technology, which allows for more precise control of the lighting and the ability to add special effects. We have already raised 2/3rds of the funds needed. We need to raise another $10K in order to move forward with the upgrade. We really need to have the new lighting in place for our summer musical.
