This Weekend: Dexter Community Players hit the stage with “James and the Giant Peach”

Dexter Community Players is proud to present their third annual youth production, James and the Giant Peach.  The show will run January 24 – 26, with Friday and Saturday performances at 7pm and afternoon performances Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.  She shows will take place at Copeland Theater, 7714 Ann Arbor St. in Dexter.

A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insect friends! An incredible journey! This amazing adventure of James Henry Trotter will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape. Roald Dahl’s story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises. You will see James,  (as he cleverly gets the Peach out of danger), the wise Old-Green-Grasshopper and the pessimistic Earthworm. You will also see James’ mean Aunt Spiker and cruel Aunt Sponge come to a suitably sticky end. The action is tied together by the Narrator, a storyteller, motivator, emcee and audience friend.

The show is directed by Deric Prieskorn and co-directed by Joy Gee. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at
