EVOKE’S THEATRE OF FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT NOVEMBER 2021 PRODUCTION is the story of Roald Dahl’s classic tale George’s Marvellous Medicine.

It’s the half term holiday and George Kranky is looking forward to a break from school when a letter from Grandma arrives announcing that she is coming to stay – that very day! Soon she is making George’s life miserable with spiteful comments and demands for doses of medicine, so George decides to mix a new type of medicine for her. Shaving foam, shampoo, lipstick and chilli powder all go into the mixture, which makes Grandma grow and grow into a giant until she crashes through the farmhouse roof. Soon Dad comes up with a plan to use the medicine to make giant farm animals – and a fortune for the Kranky family. First George needs to remember the ingredients for his marvellous medicine, with a little help from the audience.

EVOKE will present this clever play at Beau Sejour Theatre. The production runs from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 November, 2021 with six performances scheduled during the weekend.

The casting of George (shared role between two young actors (aged between 10 and 16 years)), Grandma, Mum and Dad will take place by an open try-out audition on Saturday 4 September (from 10-12) and Sunday 5 September (from 10-12).
Further details on how to register will be announced soon.

George’s Marvellous Medicine will run for approximately 90 minutes which includes one short interval.

The story is very clever and offers ‘marvellous’ character portrayals, an enriched theatrical experience and the opportunity to entertain the whole family with a fantasy fun filled production that EVOKE is proud to present in conjunction with our sole sponsor Specsavers.
