About this show

From the award-winning author Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach) comes the beloved tale of The BFG (Big Friendly Giant)! Join the young orphan Sophie and the 24-foot Big Friendly Giant on their magical journey from Giant Country to Buckingham Palace, as they team up to save the children of England from menacing, decidedly unfriendly giants. A smash on London's West End and at theatres across the United States, The BFG was declared "boisterously enjoyable" by Britain's The Guardian. The BFG is full of zany, mixed-up language, fantastical dreamscapes, and eye-popping puppets created by acclaimed Philadelphia puppeteer Aaron Cromie. Starring as the BFG is Barrymore Award-winning actor Peter Pryor, 1812 Productions co-founder and a star of the Philadelphia stage last seen in Arden's Daedalus.
