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.

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.
