Schools Notebook: ‘James and the Giant Peach’ at HMS April 26-27

by | Apr 10, 2024 | Education

The Hopkinton Middle School Drama Club will perform the junior version of “James and the Giant Peach” at the HMS auditorium. Shows are scheduled for Friday, April 26, and Saturday, April 27, at 7 p.m. both days.

The play is a delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure in which a boy and his insect friends take an amazing journey across the ocean.

Tickets are $10 for students, $15 for adults and free for Hopkinton Public Schools staff and seniors (65 and older).

Tickets are available at the door as well as online via showtix4u.com/event-details/82360.
