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.

The world of fairy tales comes together in Into The Woods at Pit & Balcony for a truly enjoyable evening. The hit musical sees the worlds of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood in a re-telling that allows audience members to re-imagine the stories with which they grew up. The intelligent directing, strong acting, and creative design bring an engaging production to the Great Lakes Bay Region.
