We are excited to catch SRT’s The Little Company’s Fantastic Mr Fox, this is based on a popular children’s novel written by British author Roald Dahl. The story is about a courageous and clever father fox attempting to keep his family safe and fed by outsmarting three meanest nastiest farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean in order to provide food for his family and the animal community.
The best part of this musical is that it is conducted in Mandarin and it is not often that kids get to watch a full play in Mandarin. We thought it is a good opportunity for them to learn, understand and appreciate Mandarin more. Before the show starts, Mr Fox and his family will go around the theatre and interact with the audience. They taught the kids how to perform various “digging” actions that get them excited.
The three farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean demonstrate distinctive characteristics among them and many times throughout the show, they provide plenty of comic relief that made the audience laugh out loud.
Fantastic Mr Fox boasts a cast of 6 talented performers playing 10 characters. They are Isabella Chiam (詹文倩) as Mrs Fox, Juni Goh (吴峻逸) as Badger, Ric Liu (刘晋旭) as Bean/Fox Child, Vester Ng (黄健顺) as Fantastic Mr Fox, Sugie Phua (潘嗣敬) as Boggis/Fox Child and Sharon Sum (沈淑蔚) as Bunce/Fox Child. Each of them portrayed their role brilliantly with such precision and dedication. We thoroughly enjoyed watching their performances.
We are pleased to be able to interview the head of the family, Mr Fox wonderfully played by Vester Ng.
