Roald Dahl's BFG (Big Friendly Giant) showcases the unlikely friendship between Sofie, an orphan, and the BFG, a 24 foot tall giant who blows dreams into children's windows. Together they resolve to overcome, with the Queen of England's help, the human bean guzzling giants who are twice the size of the BFG. Integrating puppetry, rich visuals, and imaginative storytelling, this adventurous tale features a cast of Viterbo students, as well as the puppetry and mask work of Eric Van Wyk, a local theatrical designer.
