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 oversized 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 in this charming family musical.

ZACH Theatre has always made inclusivity a mainstay of our productions. To continue this tradition, we have created a performance especially tailored to families with members on the autism spectrum.

For ZACH’s performance:

We will make environmental alterations including lighting, sound, and more relaxed house rules.
We will use glow sticks to indicate where potentially loud noises, big movements, or changes may occur.
All seating will be general admission to better accommodate individual family needs.
Each family will have more space to spread out in the theater before, during and after the performance.
Families will be allowed to come and go as needed during the performance.
We will provide quiet space in the lobby or on the plaza (should weather cooperate).
Staff will be on hand to help with any needs for you and your family.

The run time of the performance is 55 minutes
