Along the way, they are assisted by the Queen of England, the British Army, and the Royal Air Force… Humongous on humor and large on laughs, the story of The BFG was Roald Dahl’s personal favorite. Onstage, his whizzcrackling wacky tale comes to life with puppets and people creating a fantastical world of towering giants and magical adventures. Recommended for second through sixth grades.
