When push comes to shove, how much is too much? If first place in a Sales competition got you a Cadillac, second place got you a set of steak knives, and third place got you fired - in a tough economy, you’d do whatever is necessary to come out on top: you’d lie, you’d cheat, you’d do anything you could to obey the office mantra: ABC - “Always Be Closing”. Why not? It’s the early 1980s, the recession, and you work in the cutthroat business of real estate sales.

As I write this review, the temperature outside is in the single digits. I can’t imagine a better time of year to come in from the cold to a sunny, fun piece of theatre like Pit and Balcony’s James and the Giant Peach.

If you’re a fan of Roald Dahl’s literature, James and the Giant Peach at Saginaw’s Pit and Balcony will be a delightful trip down memory lane. Whimsical music and colorful costumes accompany James on his journey across the Atlantic Ocean on his giant peach as he saves his larger than life insect friends from peril using only his imagination.

What is your favorite Christmas story? Are you a traditionalist who loves the literary classics of Dickens, O Henry, and Thomas or do you harken back to the animated shows of your childhood with The Grinch, Rudolph, and Charlie Brown? Well, regardless of your preference you can bet your last dreidel that Pit and Balcony’s production Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some)! will reference your favorite holiday tale.

In an ambitious move, Saginaw’s Pit and Balcony Theatre has opted to go Into The Woods for their season 87 opener. The 1986 Tony-Winning show visits several familiar fairy tales and a few new characters to weave the disparate stories together.
