THE BFG (BIG FRIENDLY GIANT) AT THE MAGIK THEATRE
Bring your family and join us at The Magik Theatre for a sensory-friendly performance of The BFG (Big Friendly Giant)!
During our sensory inclusive performances, The Magik Theatre invites you and your child to be yourselves.
Our goal is a relaxed and judgment-free theatre experience where audiences can sing, laugh, and dance.
These performances are designed with both children and adults on the autism spectrum, and those with sensory sensitivities in mind.
About the Show:
Little orphan Sophie can’t sleep. When she peeks out the window, she is surprised to see a giant. He’s surprised to see her too and whisks Sophie away to his home in Giant Country. But this is no ordinary giant; Sophie’s giant is the world’s only friendly 24-foot-tall giant.
His primary occupation is the collection and distribution of good dreams to children. Other giants steal and have a nasty habit of eating children! To save the children of England, Sophie and the Big Friendly Giant (BFG) embark on a magical journey to Buckingham Palace where they must convince the Queen to help them get rid of all the bad giants once and for all. Along the way, Sophie finds a friend she can count on and the BFG finds a friend who accepts him for who he is.
The Big Friendly Giant promises to deliver a captivating mix of thrilling adventures, playful wordplay, and even some explosive whizzpopping moments guaranteed to make you smile!
