See this popular Roald Dahl story live on stage
Roald Dahl is such a well-known author and loved by so many around the world. This is the live story of his fabulous book George's Marvellous Medicine.

The story is an enchanting one which starts as just another boring day for George but quickly turns into a marvellous experiment of gigantic proportions!

Even when George is having a good day, he cannot stand his Grandma. She complains all the time, she's mean and she smells funny.

On one particular day, Grandma is much more annoying than usual and George has had enough. With comments like "George make me a cup of tea! George rub my feet! George stop growing!" George decides he wants an end to her constant nagging.

He therefore invents a special medicine, greater than any medicine in the history of the world. However, he does not really assume that this medicine will actually work - well at least, not in the way he thinks!

The award-winning team who presented the production of Roald Dahl's, Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts, is bringing this book to the live stage with a new stage adaptation from the weird mind of this enchanted storyteller. It is direct from a sold-out season at the Sydney Opera House. It is full of magic, music, mischief and hearty laughs.

The show is suitable for ages 6 years, right up until 106, but a word of caution - grandmothers everywhere BEWARE! The show will be on from 4th to 8th July, 2018. It will be on at the State Theatre, 174 - 176 William St, Perth.

$30.00 Adult
$25.00 Family Pass (4 tickets)
$20 Vacation care groups (10 ) - 1 complimentary ticket for every 10 purchased.

About Roald Dahl
Roald Dahl is such a well known and loved writer of all sorts of stories. Roald Dahl was a "spy, an ace fighter pilot, a chocolate historian and a medical inventor".

As well as all this, he was also the author of the following:

* Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
My Uncle Oswald
The Enormous Crocodile
Esio Trot
James and the Giant Peach
Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts
The Twits

He has written many more children's books and for a lot of people, he is the No. 1 storyteller.

Roald was born in Wales, in 1916 to and his parents were Norwegian. He was actually named after Roald Amundsen, the Norwegian who had been the first man to reach the South Pole just four years earlier.

He attended boarding school where pupils were invited to trial chocolate bars. The memory of this stayed with Dahl throughout his life, and indeed it inspired Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

He went on to marry the American actress, Patricia Neal, and they had five children together. They divorced after 30 years, and he later married Felicity Crosland. Felicity furthered Roald's legacy through the foundation of "Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity" and "The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre".

Roald also had tremendous success on television. His stories had been told in six episodes of the award-winning US series "Alfred Hitchcock Presents", and his Tales of the Unexpected ran for several series in the UK.

Book now for this play, as most of this author's stories are endearing. This is a play that is well worth seeing and children and adults alike will adore it!
