Fantastic Mr Fox

Take a sneak peek at the newly released trailer for Fantastic Mr Fox as it arrives in London before a nationwide tour.

The new musical adaptation arrives at Lyric Hammersmith, London, where it will play until 19 February before touring nationwide. 

And with rave reviews, the critics agree that the show is ‘Classic Dahl. Great fun’ (Mail on Sunday) and ‘fresh family entertainment - a whisker licking treat’ (The Times).

Maria Aberg’s imaginative new production sees Mr Fox hit the 21st Century; kitted out in sporty streetwear and leaping around a vibrantly colourful three tiered revolving set, he’s the swaggering king of the countryside. That is until his home comes under attack from tyrannical farmers and their mechanical diggers. 

Sam Holcroft's adaptation introduces some new furry faces to the burrow. Meet hyperactive Rabbit, a very cheese obsessed Mouse, cautious but brilliant Badger and short-sighted Mole, along with feisty Mrs Fox and techie daughter, Kit. The play centres around their willingness to share and work together to save the day. Only then can they defeat the thoroughly gruesome Boggis, Bunce and Bean

Filled with brilliantly catchy songs that you won’t be able to get out of your head, and accompanied by an onstage band of tweeting blue birds, Roald Dahl’s arguably most cunning creation has never been more Fantastic.

Check out the trailer below.
