Adapted for the stage by David Wood, Fantastic Mr Fox was first staged by The Little Company in 2012. The production in English was such a huge hit with parents, teachers, and children, that The Little Company is bringing the production back—this time in Mandarin!
Written by the world’s favourite children’s author, Roald Dahl, Fantastic Mr Fox is a classic tale of goodies and baddies. It is an inspiring story about a brave and clever Mr Fox who outsmarts three farmers’ nasty schemes in order to provide for his family.
The farmers Boggis, Bunce, and Bean have been digging up the animals’ home, trying to get Mr Fox by any means possible. Trapped underground, Mr Fox and his family and friends are starving, leaving Mr Fox with no choice but to devise a plan to find food for everyone to survive.
This play in Mandarin will be helmed by Associate Director Cherilyn Woo (FAUST/US, The Nightingale) and will feature the original production design by Hayley Grindle, one of the most exciting designers in the UK, as well as original music composed by Singapore’s very own Dick Lee.
Watching Fantastic Mr Fox in Mandarin (了不起的狐狸爸爸) will enhance children’s experience of the Mandarin language in a fun and engaging manner, giving them a wealth of new vocabulary. The play also presents the opportunity to support STEM learning, for example through drawing parallels between the digging action of the animals and the mechanism of excavators.
Filled with humour, interactivity and action, this is a wonderful theatre experience to be enjoyed by children aged five and above together with their families.
