James and the Giant Peach

Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach is now a musical for the whole family to enjoy! Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by the Tony Award-nominated team of Pasek and Paul (Dogfight and A Christmas Story the Musical) and a curiously quirky book by Timothy Allen McDonald (Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka, The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley), critics rave: James and the Giant Peach is a "masterpeach!" When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that 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 as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building. A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, the creative possibilities with James and the Giant Peach are endless. Actors will love playing the outlandish characters and performing brand new material from one of Broadway's hottest duos.

God’s Man In Texas

Faith and egos collide in the age of mass-market religion at Houston's Rock Baptist Church, "the Baptist Super Bowl.” A search committee has been formed to find a successor to Rock's legendary pastor, 81-year-old Philip Gottschall. Gottschall protects what he has spent a lifetime building by backing young Jeremiah Mears as his replacement, but as Jerry gains a foothold, Gottschall's grip on his pulpit becomes as firm as his faith. When Hugo, the pastor’s soundman, and Jerry discover their lives are astonishingly linked by past events, Gottschall fears their alliance and becomes haunted by "whisperings and secrets." As the struggle among this trinity of men climaxes, there is a sacrifice, a resurrection and, finally, salvation as God whispers to a listening heart.
