fantastic mr fox event
Kerikeri Theatre Company proudly presents our 2023 Youth Theatre production of  “Fantastic Mr Fox”, by Roald Dahl and adapted for stage by David Wood.

Roald Dahl’s much-loved story follows the vain attempts of three farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean, one fat, one short, one lean, to get rid of the fox who regularly steals food from their farms.

They try to kill him by any means possible. Outwitted at every turn, the farmer’s ploys backfire. Fantastic Mr. Fox devises a plan which will ensure full stomachs for not only his family, but all of his friends, who celebrate with a sumptuous feast.

With a very talented local youth cast, aged 7 to 17, directed by Kylie Penn and supported by Kerikeri Theatre Company’s clever creative crew, this show is sure to delight audiences of all ages.

We can’t wait to bring you, and the whole family, this clever tale of goodies versus baddies this July school holidays!  

General Admission tickets sell for just $25 per adult, $15 per student (5-18years) and $5 per child under 5. Seats are not allocated.

We look forward to sharing this classic children’s tale on the stage, this July!

How do I get my ticket once I’ve ordered?

After ordering you will be sent a ticket via email. Print it up and bring it along or display it via your phone at the door. Each ticket will contain a unique QR code which we will scan at the door.

What kind of seating do you provide?

Seating is on a tiered structure and we will do the best with this to ensure great visibility to everyone. Seats are not numbered and are therefore, un-allocated. Please arrive early to get a good spot.

​Is the show family friendly?

Definitely! However, we would like to recognise that some of Roald Dahl’s work has recently come under fire for having some questionable language and themes. This production has stayed true to the original story, in all of it’s ‘imperfectness’. Please be warned that we have not censored it 🙂

Is there an intermission?

No, there is no intermission for this show.

​Do you offer refunds?

​Unfortunately we are not able to offer refunds once a ticket has been reserved, unless the production is canceled or significantly postponed. However, if you are not able to attend, please feel free to contact us and we will try our best to assist you with re-selling the ticket.

​What if I can’t make the show but I’ve already bought a ticket? Can I change the date?

Our ticketing system does not allow for the changing of dates so you are unable to change the date once a ticket has been purchased. However, we will create a public resource on our Facebook page to assist people who are looking to sell or trade tickets.

Just contact for information.

​Can I buy tickets at the door?

​Yes, tickets will be available at the door, however you will save $5 on your tickets when you purchase in advance. The door price will be $30 for Adults, $20 for students and $10 for under 5s.

​Can I bring my own food or drink into the show?

​You are welcome to bring your own food but please be conscious of noisy wrappers. Please help us to keep the venue tidy – our team is made up of our own volunteers and parents.

​Will I be able to buy food and drinks?

​Yes, we will have a small supply of light snacks and drinks available to purchase before the show.

Where is the Turner Centre’s Plaza Located?

​The Turner Centre is located at 43 Cobham Road, Kerikeri. The Plaza building is the front building. We will have signage around to help you find the venue.
