Christian Youth Theater has announced its upcoming season of four productions.

“James and the Giant Peach,” running Oct. 6-8, at Marian University

Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book, “James and the Giant Peach” is now a musical for the whole family. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by the Tony Award-nominated team of Pasek and Paul (“Dogfight” and “A Christmas Story the Musical”) and a curiously quirky book by Timothy Allen McDonald (“Willy Wonka,” “The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley”), and critics rave: “James and the Giant Peach” is a “masterpeach!”

“The Sound of Music,” running Feb. 2-4, at Marian University

The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical. In this adaptation of the timeless movie for students, the Von Trapp family comes to life.

“12 Angry Jurors,” running Jan. 19-28, at Theater at the Fort

CYT will offer its second non-musical feature with this mystery, based on the award winning play/movie “12 Angry Men,” a 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts.

“Footloose,” running June 8-19, Location is to be determined
