Fantastic Mr. Fox, what a cussing great children'sn story. Roald Dahl out-cussing-did himself with this one, and Wes Anderson's film adaptation is just cussing brilliant.
As adapted to the stage by Sally Reed, Fantastic Mr. Fox is an adventures that pits the titular antihero against a group of nasty farmers, and, at times, his own nature.
Leslie Barker, Director of Outreach and Education at Theatre Memphis, has assemblrd a new summer youth company, and is currently preparing her cast and crew for a "fully realized production" on TM's main stage.
Fantastic Mr. Fox runs Monday through cussing Friday at 11am and Saturday and Sunday at 2pm, July 15 — 21, 2013.
