Come See the BFG

Come see “The BFG,” (Big Friendly Giant) which was adapted from a story by Roald Dahl (the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach) for First Stage Children’s Theater. It has a cast of wonderful adult actors and two alternating casts of three absolutely amazing young Milwaukee area actors. While it is a popular children’s story I think it offers a lot of drama and comedy for adults also. It opens on Friday, 9/19/03. The actors: Tiffany Boeke, Mondy Carter, Dan Katula. Michelle Pretorius, Brian Allman Samantha Anderson. Veronica LaGuardia, John McAdams Jenna Wolfsohn, Hannah Barbeau and Ari Shapiro It also features the talents of a pretty large group of local technicians and artisans including a great set design by Sarah Hunt-Frank a magical lighting design by Noele Stollmack great costumes and masks designed by Tina Campbell wonderful puppets and props by Mark Hare The BFG (Big Friendly Giant)” Friday through Oct. 12 Marcus Center’s Todd Wehr Theater, 929 N.
