Roald Dahl’s much-loved Fantastic Mr Fox leaps off the page and onto the Playhouse stage at Arts Centre Melbourne from 1 – 4 December 2021 in a “jaw-droppingly”, visually-spectacular, critically-acclaimed production for the whole family.

shake & stir theatre co, the Brisbane based company behind award winning, sold out national tours of Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine and multi Helpmann Award® nominated Revolving Rhymes & Dirty Beasts, heads to Melbourne with this tall tale perfect for all ages to enjoy.

Published in 1970, Dahl’s hilarious wit remains on full display today in Fantastic Mr Fox, an action-thriller-suspense-comedy overflowing with cunning plans, explosions and chases, not to mention mischief, mayhem and humongous belly laughs.

Mr Fox lives in the wood, under a hole, under a huge tree with Mrs Fox and their small Fox family. Every night, Mr Fox leaves the hole to steal food from three horrible farmers – Boggis, Bunce and Bean – one fat, one short, one lean.

The three greedy farmers concoct a plan to catch Mr Fox, but no-one outfoxes a fox. When Mr Fox needs to save his family and friends, he’ll go to any length, above or underground, to outwit the mean humans.

This summer join Mr Fox and his team of furry friends as they bounce, burrow and bewilder their way to safety.
