Roald Dahl’s much-loved story follows the vain attempts of three farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean, one fat, one short, one lean, to get rid of the fox who regularly steals food from their farms.

They try to kill him by any means possible. Outwitted at every turn, the farmer’s ploys backfire. Fantastic Mr. Fox devises a plan which will ensure full stomachs for not only his family, but all his friends, who celebrate with a sumptuous feast.

"Another excellent adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's classic by David Wood... designed to capture fertile imaginations with its appealing storyline and simple language, no wonder it is a hit." - The Stage

"This is a fantastic show to be enjoyed by kids of all ages." - The CoventryTelegraph
