UK TOUR 2009
‘THIS IS A WHIZZCRACKING SHOW – YOU’D BE BOGSWINKLED TO MISS IT’
When little orphan Sophie is snatched out of her bed in the dead of night by the BFG she fears the worst. His grisly neighbours the Bloodbottler and the Fleshlumpeater like nothing more than swalloping human beans, especially nice little childers, but the Big Friendly Giant is a dream maker and not a man-eater and he’s about to take Sophie on a journey she never expected!
An undisputed national treasure and the world’s favourite children’s author, Roald Dahl has enchanted young minds for more than twenty five years with stories that fire the imagination, bring dreams to life and release squeals of both terror and delight.
The BFG is classic Dahl and this brand new stage show promises to mix up heart-pounding adventures with life-long friendships, jumbly words and even some whizzpopping in front of the Queen!
This new production is adapted by David Wood – the UK’s ‘National Children’s Dramatic’ (TV Times) and directed by Phil Clark.
