One wonderful day, his luck turned when he ran into a mysterious stranger who handed him green crocodile tongues to plant in his garden. The next morning he awoke to a grand sight: a peach the size of his house had grown overnight! The show goes on to tell the story of James’ hardships from living with his aunts and how they will be use his peach for business. This musical will contain many fun jokes and interesting insects that help James throughout his journey.
