ChiIL Mama will be out to review at the press opening December 14th, so check back soon for our full review.

Emerald City Theatre (ECT) will open the Chicago premiere of Fantastic Mr. Fox, adapted for the stage by David Wood from the book by Roald Dahl and directed by ECT Artistic Director Jacqueline Stone, at Victory Gardens Začek-McVay Theater, 2433 N Lincoln Ave, on December 14, 2018.

Fantastic Mr. Fox is the first production presented by Emerald City Theatre on the mainstage at Victory Gardens Theater. The two theater companies worked together last year on Play Pals, a collaboration that provided a theater experience for the whole family – ECT teaching artists offered workshops for children while their parents attended a Victory Gardens Theater performance. 
“We are delighted to continue growing our relationship with Victory Gardens Theater as we prepare for Fantastic Mr. Fox,” says Stone. “This opportunity will allow us to move forward artistically as we expand our reach, particularly with older age groups, and the scope of what we are able to bring to life onstage.” 

The production will feature Mario Aivazian (Mr. Fox), Brianna Buckley (Badger), Tia Pinson (Mrs. Fox), Aaron Lawson (Boggis), Isa Arciniegas (Bunce), Jeffrey Hoge (Bean), Jeanne T. Arrigo (Mabel/Ensemble), Rebecca Keeshin (Fox Child), Elleon Dobias (Badger Child/Mabel Understudy), Diego Colón (Mr. Fox Understudy), Tim Lueke (Boggis/Bean Understudy), Emma Sheikh (Badger/Mrs. Fox Understudy), Shea Lee (Bunce/Badger Child Understudy), and Sara Geist (Fox Child Understudy).

“You’re invited to a fox’s feast!”
Journey deep underground with the badgers, weasels, rabbits – and yes, foxes – for a celebration of courage, family, and community. Mr. Fox knows he must be clever to save his family from a trio of spiteful farmers, but in a twist of tunnels, he becomes the hero of the forest! David Wood’s exuberant adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic book, accompanied by live music, is a Chicago premiere.

Fantastic Mr. Fox is presented in two acts, with a 75-minute run time. Both daytime and evening performances are available. Tickets start at $20 and are available online or through the Victory Gardens Theater box office at 773.871.3000.
