When Sophie is whisked away from the orphanage in the middle of the night, she plunges into a thrilling adventure with the gentle, lovable, BFG - Big Friendly Giant. Visits to Giant Country, blowing dreams into children’s bedrooms and eating snozzcumbers are all part of the BFG’s world, but so are childchewers, bloodbottlers, and fleshlumpeaters. Join Sophie for a whizzpopping time as she ventures into Dahl’s fantastical world and learns about the perils of being selfish and the rewards of true friends.
Directed by San Diego Junior Theatre’s executive director, Will Neblett. The first rehearsal was Thursday, Jan 15 from 4-6pm in Room 207 in the Casa del Prado Building.
A JT Premiere! Recommended for ages 6 and older, for fairy-tale violence. ASL-Interpreted performance, 2pm Sat, Mar 14, 2009.
