You know as well as I do: no-one outfoxes a fox!

Why See Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox?

In the hole lived Mr. Fox and Mrs. Fox and their four small Foxes...

The most charming protagonist in Roald Dahl's incredible world, Mr Fox is returning to the stage in this musical adaptation from Sam Holcoft with songs from Doctor Who's Arthur Darvill. Locked in a battle with a horrid trio of local farmers, Mr Fox must use his wit and cunning to save his friends and family from their vengeful clutches, in an adventure that can only be described as nothing short of fantastic!

Leading the celebrations for Dahl's centenary in 2017, this flagship production is a rip-roaring romp for all ages as the beloved authors imagination is once more bought to life through song, dance, design and daring.

what is the story of Fantastic Mr Fox?

Living in a burrow under a tree, trickster Mr Fox must venture out each evening to snatch food for his family. Unfortunately the food is actually livestock owned by three gruesome and greedy farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean. Tired of Mr Fox's pilfering, they band together to put an end to his thievery once and for all, by putting an end to Mr Fox himself.

After being nearly starved out of his subterranean dwelling Mr Fox and pals devise a new way to get their dinner, one that will outfox Boggis, Bunce and Bean for good!
