The Fantastic Mr Fox UK Tour


Nuffield and Curve in association with the Lyric Hammersmith have announced a major UK Tour of Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox commencing at the Nuffield Southampton this Christmas.

This brand new family show is a playful re-telling of Roald Dahl’s much-loved book; a brilliantly witty tale of the clever Mr Fox outfoxing three greedy farmers, brought to life on stage with live music and songs.

Luke Kelly, Managing Director of the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and Roald Dahl’s grandson says: “We’re excited to be working with such an accomplished partner as Nuffield Theatre to bring FANTASTIC MR FOX to the stage in this brand new musical version, and delighted that so many people across the UK will be able to see it during the 2017 tour.”

The Fantastic Mr Fox is adapted by playwright Sam Holcroft, directed by Maria Aberg, designed by Tom Scutt, composed by Arthur Darvill, lyrics by Darren Clark, Arthur Darvill, Sam Holcroft and Al Muriel, sound design by Claire Windsor, lighting design by Lee Curran, casting director Annelie Powell and movement director Ayse Tashkiran.
