Don’t miss the summer camp production of the musical play “James and the Giant Peach” this weekend only, based on the book by Roald Dahl, at the James C. Savage theater at the old Good Hope school campus. Show starts at 8 PM, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. It is a thrilling story including an orphan boy, magic, giant sharks, an 8 1/2 foot long earthworm who likes to dance salsa, a highly sarcastic centipede and other friends. Tickets available at the door. Our own Farmer Christina took 2 1/2 weeks off to work as the costume designer. “I always loved the book, and insects are an important part of farm life. And what could be better than a bunch of beautiful children getting up on stage to tell a story and make you laugh?” 

Come see this great family-friendly show and support the STARs Productions Summer Camp! Tickets are available at the door or online:  http://m.bpt.me/event/2581160 $10 for children, $15 for adults.
