Watch as youth of Auburn captivate the audience with the adventures of “James and the Giant Peach”.

As James escapes from his terrible aunts, a band of bugs join him on the adventure that unveils the true meaning of family. The first performance is Friday, April 21, 7 p.m. at the Auburn Ave Theater, 10 Auburn Ave.

Performances are also set for 7 p.m. Saturday, April 22, with 2 o’clock matinees on Saturday and Sunday, April 22 and 23.

Brought to life on stage by the AveKids Theater camp participants, “James & The Giant Peach” will delight all ages. 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, which 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.

Auburn Ave Kids showcases local, regional and national acts and touring presentations with an emphasis on audiences ages 4 through 12 and their parents.

Tickets are $10. Call Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation at 253-931-3043, Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to noon, or online through Brown Paper Tickets at auburnwa.gov/arts.
