In David Wood’s enchanting dramatization of Roald Dahl’s award-winning story, a 15-foot-tall vegetarian giant with vocabulary issues kidnaps an orphan girl named Sophie – not to hurt her, but to protect himself from the “human beans.” Together, Sophie and her new “jumbly” friend, THE BFG (Big Friendly Giant) devise a plan to save the children of England from child-eating ogres (Bloodbottler, Fleshlumpeater, Bonecruncher, Meatdripper, Childchewer, and Gizzardgulper). Along the way, they are assisted by the Queen of England, the British Army, and the Royal Air Force!

Humongous on humor and large on laughs, the story of The BFG was Roald Dahl’s personal favorite. On stage, the Dallas Children’s Theatre brings this whizzcracklingly wacky tale to life with puppets and people creating a fantastical world of towering giants and magical adventures.

Recommended for grades 2nd-6th, or ages 7 and up
