Out of an abundance of caution, The National Theatre Corporation is canceling its Saturday Morning Live! performances on April 18. While disappointed, the safety and well-being of our patrons and employees are of premiere importance.

Great Works Theatre: The BFG

When Sophie is snatched from her bed by a Giant, she fears that he’s going to eat her. But the Giant has no intention of harming her – after all, he is THE BIG FRIENDLY GIANT.

The BFG takes her to his cave in Giant Land, where he hides from the other nasty giants. While they’re squiffsquiddling off to Turkey (“to have turkey dinner”) he stays behind, cataloging his dreams, the dreams he blows into the ears of sleeping children in hopes of giving them very good sleep.

But when Sophie finds out that the Giants are headed back to England to wreak havoc on English children, she convinces the BFG to help her foil the plot, and no one other than the Queen of England will have to be part of the plan!

Adapted from Roald Dahl’s modern classic book, this is great fun for young audiences.

Tickets may be reserved beginning the Friday, one week prior to the performance. There will be a limited amount of walk-up tickets will be available on-site on the day of the show. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to the performance time to take place in the “Stand-by line.” The program is best suited for children ages 4 to 10 years.

Due to the ongoing health crisis, the National Theatre will be implementing multiple changes to its spring 2020 schedule, affecting the following shows: STING STARRING IN THE LAST SHIP, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, BLUE MAN GROUP, and BABY SHARK LIVE. All patrons holding tickets for these shows will be contacted with further instructions, or patrons can click "LEARN MORE" below for more information. Please contact the National Theatre at info@thenationaldc.com with questions or concerns. We appreciate your patience while Box Office and administrative hours are limited. [As of 4/2/20]
