Roald Dahl’s enduringly popular children’s book, The BFG, takes to the stage.

This is the well-loved story of a dream-blowing, big friendly giant (BFG) and orphan girl Sophie in the land of child-eating giants.

When little 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 chiddlers. But the BFG 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 25 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.

The production links in with schools’ Key Stage 2 priorities and there is a free Education pack for teachers on the show’s web-site: www.lovebfg.com.
