Roald Dahl's, The BFG



My kiddos and I had the fun opportunity to see the production of The BFG (Big Friendly Giant) at Dallas Children's Theater. The performance was great!!

Well known author, Roald Dahl, is a familiar children's writer to many. All of my children have read his books and thoroughly enjoy each and every one. My kids were so excited when I told them that DCT would be doing a production of The BFG.

Before it started my kiddos had fun putting on their own silly puppet show.




If you are not familiar with The BFG it is about an orphan, Sophie, who is wisked off to the land of giants by a very friendly giant -- the BFG (Big Friendly Giant). While most giants are the people eating kind, BFG isn't. Sophie encounters Childchewer, Bloodbottler, and Fleshlumpeater the giants that have a liking for humans. BFG is a gentle giant who makes it his mission to capture dreams. Sophie learns that the only food to eat in the land of giants is the disgusting, stinky smelling Snozzcumber! The Snozzcumber tastes like frog skins and dead fish, yuck!! Sophie knows that something has to be done when the bad giants talk about going to England to find their next meal. What does Sophie do? She tells the BFG that they must convince the Queen of England that giants are real and must be stopped. 

Roald Dahl is an amazing writer. My kiddos love his funny made up words. The one word that always causes uncontrollable laugher is -- Whizzpopping. Whizzpopping is farting. 

DCT's production of The BFG was hilarious and well done. The acting was great. The audience was drawn into the world of Roald Dahl's BFG.
