The BFG – Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre: 21 June – 8 July
Perfect family fare for the July school holidays: The BFG comes to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre on UZKN campus from 21 June until 8 July.
Now, following the success of last year’s James and the Giant Peach, Greg King returns to direct this enchanting reimagining of Roald Dahl’s delightful children’s classic about the adventures of a big, friendly giant (BFG) and Sophie, a little orphan he befriends.
The BFG: Ten-year-old Sophie is in for the adventure of a lifetime when she meets the Big Friendly Giant. Naturally scared at first, the young girl soon realizes that the 24-foot behemoth is actually quite gentle and charming. As their friendship grows, Sophie’s presence attracts the unwanted attention of Bloodbottler, Fleshlumpeater and other giants. After travelling to London, Sophie and the BFG must convince the Queen to help them get rid of all the bad giants once and for all…
Featuring quirky and inventive puppetry and an all-star local cast, this is ideal fare for the July holidays.
