Fantastic Mr Fox

Lifton Community Centre, Park Wood Rise, Lifton PL16 0AL

February 8, 9 and 10, 2018

Red Spider Company have started rehearsals for their next community production, Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox, which has been adapted for stage by David Wood, and will be directed by Gill Taylor.

Following a series of workshops at Lewdown Victory Hall and Lifton School we have plenty of children and young people joining the cast and supporting the production in a variety of ways.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the story, it is the tale of dashing Mr Fox who uses his brilliance and wit to save his family and friends from the increasingly outrageous plans of three farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean, who are determined (at any cost) not to be out-smarted by a mere Fox! In true Roald Dahl fashion, the story is packed full of larger than life characters, comedy capers and hilarious twists and turns as Mr Fox schemes to outsmart the farmers from under their very noses.

As a production it promises to be tremendous fun, not only in the performing of the tale, but also through creative workshops which will focus on exploring areas of theatre including art; music; set and costume design. It will be a fantastic opportunity for young and old to work together to produce something just a little bit different, something that Red Spider is particularly good at!

Tickets available in January, from Mary Jordan:

Tel. 01837 871220 and from the Lifton Shop

Adults £6.00, 5-16 £3.00 and under 5s are free
