FANTASTIC MR FOX SEATING PLAN
The Stalls generally offer good views at the Lyric Hammersmith, with support pillars only at the end of rows which does not hinder views. The Circle does begin to overhang the stage about two thirds of the way back, however is not a huge problem.

The Circle is a fairly small section and well raked meaning audience members towards the rear still have clear views. There is a safety rail in front of Row A however meaning views can be slightly less than ideal, however legroom can also be quite tight in this row. The Upper Circle is of a similar size, however safety rails get far more in the way in this section and should be watched out for if buying seats in Rows A-C.

STORY
One of Roald Dahl’s most loved stories Fantastic Mr Fox was given new life as it was brought to the stage in a new adaptation by Sam Holcroft. Having began performances at London’s Lyric Hammersmith theatre on 28th January 2017, the show ran until 19th February 2017, and was perfect for all the family.

The tale follows three farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean, who are greedy, smelly and nasty, but most of all hate Mr Fox. The complete opposite of the trio, Mr Fox is clever, smart and most of all fantastic. He completely underestimates how far the three will go to get revenge on him.

As Mr Fox often says himself, “You know as well as I do: no-one outfoxes a fox!”, but with the evil farmers on his tail, can he think up an ingenious plan to save his friends and family? Can he escape the diggers and outsmart the farmers? And can his good friend Rabbit keep quiet long enough not to give them away.

Road Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox was an ideal play for all the family packed full of fun. A story of greed, pride and the power of friendship, this landmark show as part of the Roald Dahl 100 celebrations is a huge theatrical extravaganza, packed full of live music and songs.

Roald Dahl is one of the greatest children’s authors of all time, with his work continually being adapted, including the hugely successful Matilda – The Musical by Tim Minchin and the recent Steven Speilberg movie version of The BFG.

Fantastic Mr Fox was the perfect opportunity to relive one of his most exciting stories, in a brilliant new version by the up and coming young playwright Sam Holcroft. Holcroft’s work has become critically acclaimed, with plays such as Rules For Living and Edgar and Annabel being produced by the National Theatre.

The cast featured Greg Barnett as Mr Fox, with Richard Atwill as Rat/Bean, Raphael Bushay as Badger/Boggis, Lillie Flynn as Mrs Fox, Sandy Foster as Rabbit, Jade Croot as Kit and Gruffudd Glyn as Mole and Bunce.

Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox began performances at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in London on 28th January 2017 and ran until 19th February 2017. This was definitely one family theatre trip not to be missed!
Suitable For
Packed full of songs and telling one of the most loved of all Roald Dahl’s stories, Fantastic Mr Fox really is the perfect show for all the family.
