THE BFG (BIG FRIENDLY GIANT)

MAY 4 – JUNE 2, 2024

Adapted for the stage by David Wood
From the book by Roald Dahl

This performance is made possible in part by a generous grant from the Russell Hill Rogers Fund for the Arts.

Little orphan Sophie can’t sleep. When she peeks out the window, she is surprised to see a giant. He’s surprised to see her too and whisks Sophie away to his home in Giant Country. But this is no ordinary giant; Sophie’s giant is the world’s only friendly 24-foot-tall giant. His primary occupation is the collection and distribution of good dreams to children. Other giants steal and have a nasty habit of eating children! To save the children of England, Sophie and the Big Friendly Giant (BFG) embark on a magical journey to Buckingham Palace where they must convince the Queen to help them get rid of all the bad giants once and for all. Along the way, Sophie finds a friend she can count on and the BFG finds a friend who accepts him for who he is. The Big Friendly Giant promises to deliver a captivating mix of thrilling adventures, playful wordplay, and even some explosive whizzpopping moments guaranteed to make you smile!
