The BFG (return season)

BFG_2019_WEBSITE21 - 31 March 2019
Family show

Following the success of last year’s production, Greg King returns to direct this enchanting re-imagining 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 24-foot Big Friendly Giant. Naturally scared at first, the young girl soon realizes that her new companion is actually quite gentle and charming. As their friendship grows, Sophie's presence attracts the unwanted attention of a slew of bad giants including the scary Bloodbottler and Fleshlumpeater. Sophie and the BFG realise that they must travel to London to convince Queen Victoria to help them get rid of all the bad behemoths for once and for all.

Featuring quirky and inventive puppetry and an all-star local cast, this is ideal fare for the March school holidays.  Advance booking is available through Computicket via their call centre (0861 915 8000), https://online.computicket.com/web/event/the_bfg/1234543115 or at any Checkers Money Market counter.  Tickets are R135, R165 and R195 with a discount for children between 3 and 12 of R115, R135 and R165 respectively.
