|Fantastic Mr Fox|
Roald Dahl’s much-loved Fantastic Mr Fox will leap off the page and onto the State Theatre Centre of WA stage from 22 to 26 January 2020 in a “jaw-droppingly”, visually-spectacular, critically-acclaimed production for the whole family.
Published in 1970, Fantastic Mr Foxdisplays the full array of Dahl’s hilarious wit: it’s an action-thriller-suspense-comedy overflowing with cunning plans, explosions and chases, not to mention mischief, mayhem and humongous belly laughs.
Mr Fox lives in the wood, in a hole, under a huge tree with Mrs Fox and their small Fox family. Every night, Mr Fox leaves the hole to steal food from three horrible farmers – Boggis, Bunce and Bean – one fat, one short, one lean.
The three greedy farmers concoct a plan to catch Mr Fox, but no-one outfoxes a fox. When Mr Fox needs to save his family and friends, he’ll go to any length, above or below ground, to outwit the mean humans.
“This is epic theatre for young people: actors interacting with full-stage animation on a huge 12-metre tall set that houses a bag-full of theatrical tricks – it’s thrilling, cutting-edge theatre that appeals to people of all ages,” he said.
Venue: The State Theatre Centre of WA
