heatre Arts Productions (TAP) will present Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach from Friday, Jan. 10 through Sunday, Jan. 12 at Wellington High School, located at 2101 Greenview Shores Blvd. in Wellington.

The show is produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
