The BFG (Big Friendly Giant)

MBT Wade Bennett King Education Series Event

Dallas Children’s Theater On Tour

Adapted for the stage by David Wood

From the book by Roald Dahl

In the much-beloved tradition of Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), two misfits join together for an unforgettable odyssey. For a young orphan “human bean,” the sight of a giant outside her window is terrifying, and she fears for her life when he whisks her away to an enchanted land. This Big Friendly Giant is not like other giants, however—the job of this larger-than-life vegetarian is to blow magical dreams into children’s bedroom. Together, two embark on a quest to save England from the “gizzard-gulping” giants who don’t have the BFG’s tender heart, ultimately proving that heroes can come in all sizes.

Humongous on humor and large on laughs, the story of the BFG was Roald Dahl’s personal favorite. Onstage, his whizzcrackingly wacky tale comes to life with puppets and people creating a fantastical world of towering giants and magical adventures.
