The latest theatrical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic story George’s Marvellous Medicine has hit the stage at Curve theatre, Leicester, to rapturous responses from audience members and critics alike. Ahead of its run at The Grand Opera House in Belfast 13 – 17 Feb, Chandni Mistry, who plays the role of the Chicken, talks about the production.
“It’s so exciting to be part of this show! Our production of George’s Marvellous Medicine really shows how imagination is the most amazing thing, not just for kids but for adults too. All George wants to do over his school holiday is read a book but the adults keep getting in the way, to get around that, he finds the most ridiculously inventive ways to have fun again.
“We do have a strong ‘don’t try this at home’ message in the show but we’re also really inspiring creativity and entrepreneurship in our audiences. A lot of our props are made from recycled objects so we’ve all used our imaginations to make the most random things into pigs and chickens - it really works and makes you see the world in a different, inventive way.
“Being on stage, we see people of all ages laughing along and getting involved which is great. It’s unexpected, funny and awesome!”
Don’t miss Roald Dahl’s treasured tale brought to phizz-whizzing life!
Show runs from Tuesday 13 - Saturday 17 February with 1pm matinee performances Wed - Fri.
