Roald Dahls Fantastic Mr Fox is family fun at its finest. A major new musical version of this enchanting classic comes to the New Theatre, Cardiff from 21 25 February, making it the perfect half-term treat.

news imageFollowing hot on the heels of Cardiffs sensational celebrations for the centenary of the worlds number one storyteller, this brand new family show is a playful re-telling of Roald Dahls much-loved book. Its a fast-paced and fun tale brought to life with charming, colourful costumes; a spectacular set and wonderfully witty songs and music.

Boggis, Bunce and Bean, three greedy, smelly, horrid farmers hate the cunning Mr Fox. Mr Fox is smart, clever and rather fantastic, but he doesn't realise how determined the farmers are to get revenge. Can he hatch a plan to save his family and friends? Can they outrun the diggers and outsmart the farmers? And can Rabbit shut up long enough not to give the game away?

First published in 1970, Fantastic Mr Fox remains a firm favourite amongst Roald Dahl fans of all ages. The story of Mr Fox and his heroic adventures became a global sensation following the popular success of Wes Andersons Oscar-nominated movie version (released in 2009), which starred George Clooney in the title role.

This new commission by Nuffield and Curve in association with Lyric Hammersmith brings together a stellar creative team: playwright Sam Holcroft, director Maria Aberg, designer Tom Scutt, composer Arthur Darvill and lyricists Darren Clark, Arthur Darvill, Sam Holcroft and Al Muriel. This new musical adaptation of Fantastic Mr Fox is a flagship production for the Roald Dahl 100 celebrations.
