Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox at Milton Keynes Theatre

‘We are all different, but there is something kind of fantastic about that, isn’t there?!’

This play, adapted for the stage by Sam Holcroft was charming, witty, silly and brilliant, I’m sure Roald Dahl himself would love it. Great fun for all the family with just the right amount of naughtiness, peril, guts and gore that kids LOVE.

The story follows Mr Fox and his friends as they find ingenious ways to outsmart the horrible, stinky farmers trying to catch them. It explores the theme of greed versus sharing and how being kind and working together will ultimately save the day. With a few drops of adult humour thrown in, it really was a wonderfully funny play to watch with some catchy songs and a few relatable modern anecdotes.

The stage set was superb, really interactive with lots going on and the costumes were perfect, quite funny and highlighted the characters personalities. Brilliant performance from the whole cast acting, singing and dancing and to entertain kids and big kids alike, they played their characters skillfully well.


Can you outfox a fox? Hurry along to Milton Keynes Theatre this week to catch them before they dig their way out! The show runs until Saturday 11th March - grab your tickets now from www.atgtickets.com
