No food or drink permitted.

W.E. Singleton Center for the Performing Arts, 922 Park Ave  (VCU Campus near the intersection of Harrison and Park Ave).

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. Join us for a playful show complete with whimsical costumes, creative set design, and one-of-a-kind puppets designed and built by artist Noel Williams for this outlandish and larger-than-life tale.
