Children: Theatre: Fantastic Mr Fox

26 November 2019

22 – 26 January @ State Theatre Centre of WA ·
Presented by Shake & Stir Theatre and PTT ·

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 Fox displays 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.

“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.
