Boggis, Bunce and Bean, three greedy, smelly, horrid farmers hate the cunning Mr Fox.

Mr Fox is smart, clever and rather fantastic, but he doesn't realise how determined the farmers are to get revenge. Can he hatch a plan to save his family and friends? Can they outrun the diggers and outsmart the farmers?


Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox is family fun at its finest. A juicy tale of greed, pride and the power of friendship, this brand new musical adaptation promises a dahlicious theatrical feast with live music and songs and gloriumptious designs. A wondercrump treat for the whole family!

The critical consensus

It’s a strong cast all round who provide the audience with a great night out.

***(*)(*)Justine Blundell, Edinburgh Guide, 16/05/2017

It’s an ambitious, energetic and brilliantly shell-suited reimagining of one of the true classics of children’s literature.

****(*)Jonny Sweet, The Wee Review, 16/05/2017

It’s a gloriously fun evening, it is lacking some finesse but makes up for it with warmth, talent and zest.

***(*)(*)Dominic Corr, The Reviews Hub, 16/05/2017

I would recommend it for people who liked the book or the movie.

***(*)(*)Cora Dibdin, All Edinburgh Theatre, 17/05/2017

The children love most of it; and by the end, they’re bouncing happily along with the closing song, while the cast of foxes – plus rabbit, mouse, mole, badger and a few birds – take a well-earned bow.

***(*)(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 20/05/2017

Musical theatre in its execution but very much Roald Dahl in its feel, this touring adaptation of Fantastic Mr Fox has plenty to please a young audience with added bonuses for grown-ups.
