What's New at Hartley
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous peach – and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach among human-sized insects with equally over-sized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (The Greatest Showman and Dear Evan Hansen).
The Bishop Hartley Drama Department will present James and the Giant Peach May 9-11 at 7:00 p.m. and May 12 at 2:00 p.m. at the Columbus Performing Arts Center (549 Franklin Avenue). Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and students and can be reserved by emailing BishopHartleyTheatre@gmail.com.
