The BFG

Adapted by David Wood | by Roald Dahl
Directed by Shirley Shaw
Director of Music Justine Addison
Choreography Samantha North
28th December – 4th January 1996
Dance - Samantha North’s Dance Academy

This adaptation by David Wood of Roald Dahl’s well-known children’s book The BFG appeals to children of all ages from 3 to 93. Unlike his fellow giants, the kind-hearted BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is no man-gobbling canny-bull: he actually likes Human Beans, especially Sophie.

So leave your ‘telly-telly bunkum box’ and come whizpopping with Sophie and the BFG in their brainbogglingsome adventures.
