The Big Friendly Giant

The Big Friendly Giant

Presented by The Whiting at The Whiting

In the much beloved tradition of Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), we join two misfits on an unforgettable odyssey. For a young orphan “human bean”, the sight of a giant outside her window is terrifying, and she fears for her life when he whicks her away to an enchanted land. This Big Friendly Giant is not like other giants, however. The job of this larger-than-life vegetarian is to blow magical dreams into children’s bedrooms, and together they embark on a quest to save England from the “gizzard-gulping” giants who don’t have the BFG’s tender heart. The cheeky B.F.G. ultimately shows that heroes can come in all sixes.

Humongous on humor and large on laughs, the story of the BFG was Roald Dahl’s personal favorite. On stage, his whizzcrackingly wacky tale comes to life with puppets and people creating a fantastical world of towering giants and magical adventures. 

Most enjoyed by ages 7 and up
