Roald Dahl’s

FANTASTIC MR FOX

Adapted for the stage by Shake & Stir Theatre Co.

“No one outfoxes a fox!”

One of the biggest, brightest and bushiest characters in children’s literature comes to life in this audio visual extravaganza.

Straight from Roald Dahl’s classic children’s romp comes the indefatigable Mr Fox, a trickster who lives in his burrow with his wife and pup. To keep food on the table, he slips out every night to steal from his neighbours, the wicked farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean. When the trio, sick of being outsmarted, hatches a nefarious plan that puts his family and friends in grave danger, Mr Fox and a band of woodland revolutionaries must use every ounce of cunning and wit they have to set things right.

Adapted for the stage by award-winning producers Shake & Stir Theatre Co, Fantastic Mr Fox sees live actors interact with lush and beautifully realised animations, as all the magic and touching detail of Dahl’s fantastical world comes to life on stage.

This is a story for children and cubs from five years old and up, the perfect outing for the family and a giggle-inducing celebration of one of the animal kingdom’s greatest heroes.

Approx. duration 1hr (no interval). Subject to change. More info.
