Dallas Children’s Theater THE BFG (Big Friendly Giant)
January 22, Meyer Library 205 Technology Training Center
In an enchanting dramatization of Roald Dahl’s award-winning story, a 15-foot-tall giant teams up with an orphan girl named Sophie to save the children of England from child-eating ogres – with some help from the Queen of England, the British Army, and the Royal Air Force!
Humongous on humor and large on laughs, the story of The BFG was Roald Dahl’s personal favorite. On stage, the Dallas Children’s Theatre brings this whizzcracklingly wacky tale to life with puppets and people creating a fantastical world of towering giants and magical adventures.
This performance is part of Hammons Hall’s David B. McQueary Family Theatre series, and is recommended for ages 7 and up.
