Garden City High School will present its production of "James and the Giant Peach" at 7 p.m. April 5 and 6. Student-directed, one-act plays will be presented at 7 p.m. April 11. Both productions will be in the GCHS Auditorium.
"James and the Giant Peach," Roald Dahl's classic tale, is faithfully told by James himself and the insect characters - Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybug and Earthworm. The play begins at the end of the story, when James and his friends are living in the giant peach stone in Central Park, N.Y. A tour guide brings a party of tourists (the audience) to see this major attraction, and James and his friends tell the story of how they came to live in New York.
This production is presented by the Acting II class. Tickets available at the door at $4 for adults and $2 for students and children.
A night of student-directed one-act plays will be presented at 7 p.m. April 11. The plays are the directing projects of the GCHS Acting III class and include: "Ledge, Ledger and the Legend," by Paul Ellio; "Almost the Bride of Dracula," by Dennis Snee; "The Loveliest Afternoon of the Year" and "Something I'll Tell You Tuesday," both by John Guare.
Tickets will be available only at the door for cash or check at $2 per person. There will be no pre-sale tickets for either production.
