James - James and the Giant Peach

Who’s there? Come here little ladybug. Don’t be afraid. I promise I won’t hurt you. Come on. I see you too, Mr. Grasshopper. Join us. You see these? (James shows the Ladybug and Grasshopper the glasses and scarf.) These are the only things left of my parents. I must keep these very safe. This is no place for the two of you. You can leave any time you want. I can’t leave, because… I have no place to go.

Ladahlord - James and the Giant Peach

And there it is! The very first primordial ooze of an inkling that has the potential to lead to so many other fan-tas-ma-ri-fic things! HA! James! That bag, right over there, contains something re-mark-u-lous! Are you willing to reach into the great unknown and find out what’s inside? Come on James! Only you have the power to change the course of your wretched little life. What’s it going to be? Victim? Or hero?

Sponge - James and the Giant Peach

Look, it’s growing! That is one large peach! There it goes again! Smell it! It’s ripe! Let’s get a shovel and dig out a great big hunk of it to eat! But it smells so gooooooood… Let me take a bite? A taste? A lick? What’s the use of a giant peach if we can’t eat it? Just look at it!

Ladybug - James and the Giant Peach

James! James dear, it’s alright. Glowworm, could we have a little illumination, if you please? Thanks, ever so! James, you were having a bad dream. Here, have a bit of peach. I’ve warmed it under my wing and added a drizzle of honey that I found in my purse.

Marliana, like Hamilton or Les Miserables is all music. Even the dialogue is sung so these are the songs and monologues in one. Please see the songs.

CAPTAIN SQUALL'S CREW- Marliana

Pull on the line, you mongrels and swine
Or its the cat-o-nine
Treasure and more lie on yonder shore
And we'll get rich this time.
We'll have our fun and just as a prank
Let's make the governor walk off the plank
Plunder and pillage, we leave every village in flame
For shame.

CASTAWAYS - Marliana

Captain, what can be wrong in
Rolling along in
This innocent charade
This, this little masquerade. If
Our well-being
Is just leaning
On our name,
What's the shame?
Don't be alarmed. No
One will be harmed so
Please wipe that scowl away
Robinson, won't you say
You are agreed 'cause
We're all in need of meat.
Service here cannot be beat.

MARY/HULDAH/ROBINSON - Marliana

Marliana, why do I know the name?
Marliana, have I known the same
Marliana in my history?
Oh, what a rascal was that wicked child
In much need of discipline.
Her and her sisters, everyone was wild
Just like their dad, Robinson.
Marliana, are your sisters all okay?
Marliana, I'll make it home someday.
Marliana, don't give up on me.

MARLIANA - Marliana

Oh, excuse us my saintly friend if we offend.
Our looks are hard, our skin is scarred, and that's the end.
No more to me than what you see.
Oh, it's a fact, we have no tact.
You're so insightful, it's just delightful
I mean, who know how we'll react.

ROBINSON - Marliana

My girls, I'll search the world to its end
And then, when I'm all through
I'll search it over again.
God, please send a sign
That they're together and fine
And shine peace within
These precious ladies of mine.
I'm crying inside.

CASTAWAYS - Marliana

I thought that heaven had long ago
Given up on helping me.
But surviving that savage storm
In this way makes me believe that
Someone up there likes me
Someone really must care
Without a prayer, I lived in despair,
Now I see I'm finally free.

MARY/GOVERNOR PIERCE - Marliana

I thought that heaven had long ago
Given up on helping me.
But surviving that savage storm
In this way makes me believe that
Someone up there likes me
Someone really must care
Without a prayer, I lived in despair,
Now I see I'm finally free.

Scene 3: SPIKER AND SPONGE

SPIKER
You see that cottage up on the top of the hill? That’s where me and Sponge live.

SPONGE
You see that door? The one at the bottom of those stairs? The ones that lead down and into the dirt cellar?

SPIKER
That’s where you’ll live with the rest of the creepy-crawlies.

SPONGE
Whatcha got in the suitcase?

SPIKER
I’d like to see what’s inside, wouldn’t you Spongers?

SPONGE
I would. Show us what’s in the case.

SPIKER
Show us what’s in the case.

SPONGE
Show us what’s in the case!

SPIKER
That’s it? That’s all you’ve got?

SPONGE
A pair of glasses and a scarf?

SPIKER
I rather like this scarf.

SPONGE
Hey Spikes! Do these glasses make me look smart?

SPIKER
That’s unlikely, dear.

Lyrics Track

We’ve got James and a giant peach that flies
A pack of actors all in disguise
So let that curtain rise!
Right before

Right before your eyes!



ON YOUR WAY HOME - James and the Giant Peach

Lyrics Track
Instrumental Track

Where do you go when you start to feel sad?
Everyone’s gone, no more mum, no more dad.
Tucked in the clouds is there somewhere you won’t be alone?
And when you get there, is it perfect?
And when you get there, is there someone waiting for you?
May I hold onto your wings and come too?
On your way home.



FLOATIN’ ALONG- James and the Giant Peach

Lyrics Track
Instrumental Track

No direction a map is never better than
Driftin’ off without a plan
All we need is a song
At the intersection where ocean meets the sky
We’re all gonna die!
Follow me and float along
Floatin’ along, floatin’ along
La la la la la la la, floatin’ along
What could go wrong
Singin’ a song
La la la la la la la, floatin’ along



EVERYWHERE THAT YOU ARE- James and the Giant Peach

Lyrics Track
Instrumental Track

There she smiles
Beaming proud
See her laughing in that cloud
And when you feel alone
Love is never far
They are with you
Everywhere that you are

Captain, you are good and you are true.
Please don't do to these poor girls the crime that we did to you.
There's something still worth fighting for
Something that you all would miss
Something sweet
Something pure.
I am sure if this.
