The magic of Roald Dahl is brought to the stage this summer with Encore Theatre's truly fantastic production of fantastic Mr Fox.
Adapted by Sally Reid and directed by David Collins, this 40 minute, child friendly, amateur theatre production of Fantastic Mr Fox is a must for any Roald Dahl fan.
This childrens' story classic is based on a very special Fox and his family. Together with their animal friends and neighbours, this anthropomorphic fox family continuously outsmart the local wicked farmers; Boggis, Bunce and Bean.
With George Clooney playing the role of Fantastic Mr Fox in the 2009 movie, the lead actor in Encore Theatre's production had a very hard act to follow. That said, Stephen Kelly gave a truly Spectacular performance as Mr Fox, giving even Mr Clooney a run for his money.
The production was well rehearsed, ran very smoothly and was a show that every member of the cast should be very proud of.
Only a few performances remain for this family-friendly production of Fantastic Mr Fox. At only $10 per ticket and 40 minutes duration, this budget-friendly show is a delightful activity for families of preschool and primary aged children.
Catch Fantastic Mr Fox before he disappears underground until Saturday 19 January, 2019.
Where: Clayton Community Centre, Encore Theatre, 9-15 Cooke Street, Clayton
