Towards the end of may, me, mummy and Emma went to Cheltenham to see James and the giant peach. I really liked the dry ice effect, how it was very versitile - it could be clouds or waves. It was clever how there weren't very many cast at all, in fact about ten, but they still managed to create atmosphere by using bangs, props and also their voices and actions. For example the cast played the musical instruments and sang, while using great facial expressions, so when they were happy they played a happy beat, sang with joy and showed the joy by using their bodies and faces. It also followed the book very nicely, better then the film - Roahl Dahl would have been pleased. All-in-all a great, exciting production.
