Since 1947, Parkway Playhouse has been involved in providing educational and cultural opportunities in the mountains. Whether it has been in the form of providing a launching pad for early career artists to build up their resume, or lifelong learners trying something new, or for a student opening a door to personal creativity Parkway Playhouse has a long track record of being a dynamic proving ground for seventy years; the better part of a century.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.
