Fantastic Mr Fox is the legendary tale of the most cunning fox in the world by Roald Dahl. Every time Mr Fox steals a chicken from the farm, Farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean grow wild with rage! They’re the nastiest crooks in the valley, and they’ve concocted a cunning plan to dig him out of his hole once and for all.

The group have really enjoyed getting stuck in with this well-loved story. We have been working on making bold physical and vocal choices to create distinctive and memorable characters and bring the world of the play to life. This group are brand new this term, and is small but mighty! They are being helped by some members of our Tuesday group today, which we are very grateful for. We have even had a new member join late in the term to play one of the roles, but this group have continued to impress me by being adaptable throughout the rehearsal process to meet any challenges with a sense of fun.

We hope you enjoy the show!
