Toyota Meeting Hall [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
We have discussed the 17th Century in the time of King Louis 14th, the Sun King who built Versailles. We continue to monitor the tastes of the aristocrats during the Rococo period and become familiar with their lifestyles that will ultimately backfire on them; however the underground Revolutionary period begins at this time using the Neo-Classical style to support the overthrow. The people’s movement can be seen during this Romantic Movement with the final outcome seen in the period of art called Realism.

George Nakano Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, James And The Giant Peach, Jr. is a brand new take on this ‘masterpeach’ of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is delightfully entertaining for children and adults alike. 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 it into the ocean, and launches on 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. In keeping with its mission of “children performing for children”, the Fantasia Family Music cast of actors, ages 7 – 13 and will keep you captivated as they teach that we can find “friends and family” in the most unlikely places, and where we will always be ’Welcome Home’.
