Watch the beloved children’s story of “James and the Giant Peach” come to life at The University of Texas-Pan American December 8-11. The UTPA University Theatre Productions presents its fall children’s production of Roald Dahl’s famous story at the Albert L. Jeffers Theatre.

The popular children’s tale introduces us to a young orphaned boy named James Henry Trotter, who climbs aboard a magic peach the size of a house boat, for the ride of his life with his new family of overgrown insects – a ladybug, spider and grasshopper, to name a few. Where do they end up? Come to our dramatization to find out! This play is sure to be a fun time for the entire family.

The production runs December 8-9 at 7 p.m., December 10 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and December 11 at 2 p.m. The Albert L. Jeffers Theatre is located in the Communication Arts and Sciences Building on the corner of University Drive and Sugar Road on the UTPA Campus.

Ticket prices include general admission for $3 regardless of age. The box office opens one hour prior to each performance.
