The beloved children’s book by Roald Dahl and last summer’s blockbuster film is also a play! Through crafty stage magic, we see the story of an orphan girl, Sophie, as she encounters the Big Friendly Giant. Despite his intimidating appearance, her new friend turns out to be a kindhearted soul who is considered an outcast by the other giants because, unlike his peers, he refuses to eat children. Imaginative staging allows giants and humans to interact without the special effects of CG! Presented on the MainStage, you will not want to miss the heroic, silly and heart-warming tale of friendship and adventure as Sophie saves children of the world from child-eating giants! Special option: You could have the opportunity to enjoy the show from the stage!
By Roald Dahl, adapted for the stage by David Wood
