Art For All has always been a big fan of Roald Dahl, which is why we are delighted to announce that in March 2017 we will be bringing brand new family show, Fantastic Mr Fox, to the UAE. This musical adaptation, conceived in honour of Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday, has been brought to life by producing partners Nuffield and Curve, and has already received acclaim following its world premier at Nuffield Southampton Theatres. Now, as it comes to the UAE, it will be part of the prestigious UK/UAE 2017 Year of Creative Collaboration.

A hilarious story of greed, pride and the power of friendship, this playful retelling of Roald Dahl’s classic, follows the path of the clever Mr Fox and his heroic adventures outwitting three greedy farmers – Boggis, Bunce and Bean.

Adapted by Sam Holcroft, with music by Arthur Darvill, adults and children alike will be captivated by the jaw-dropping sets and hilarious cast of characters, including Greg Barnet as Mr Fox and Lillie Flynn as the longsuffering Mrs Fox.

Notable quote:

“We’re excited to be working with such an accomplished partner as Nuffield Southampton Theatres to bring Fantastic Mr Fox to stage in this brand new musical version, and delighted that so many people will be able to see it during the 2017 tour.”
Luke Kelly, Managing Director of the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and Roald Dahl’s grandson
