FANTASTIC ‘Fantastic Mr Fox!’

The big day finally arrived yesterday for Years 3 and 4 pupils who had been excitedly anticipating their trip to the Theatre Royal to see Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox.  They had an amazing time and all agreed that the show –  a fabulously funny stage adaptation brought to life with slapstick, music and larger-than-life characters – was just brilliant! Oliver was especially excited as it was his first visit to the theatre.

The children even had time for a spot of playing Chapelfield Gardens play area before the show.

Here is what the children said about the trip:

“The show was so funny!” Matilda
“I loved the part when Farmer Bean ripped his shirt open, it was so funny!” Adam
“I loved the music, it was my first time at the theatre>” Oliver
“Awesome!” Georgina
