Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre: 21 – 31 March
Perfect family fare for the Easter school holidays: KickstArt’s glorious The BFG returns to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre on UZKN campus from 21 – 31 March.
Following the sold-out success of KickstArt’s July 2018 season of The BFG, Greg King returns to redirect this enchanting reimagining of Roald Dahl“s delightful children’s classic about the adventures of a big friendly giant, and Sophie, a little orphan he befriends.
Ten-year-old Sophie is in for the adventure of a lifetime when she meets the Big Friendly Giant. Naturally scared at first, the young girl soon realizes that the 24-foot behemoth is actually quite gentle and charming. As their friendship grows, Sophie’s presence attracts the unwanted attention of Bloodbottler, Fleshlumpeater and other giants. After travelling to London, Sophie and the BFG must convince the Queen to help them get rid of all the bad giants once and for all……
Featuring quirky and inventive puppetry and an all-star local cast, this is ideal fare for the Easter holidays. It stars Bryan Hiles, Belinda Henwood, Clare Mortimer, Daisy Spencer, Straw Nzimande and Lyle Buxton.
