Open Air Theatre Performance
Production by Illyria
Open Air Theatre in Castle Kennedy Gardens
Enjoy a great, family outing with a thrilling, open air theatre production of one of Roald Dahl’s best loved tales, Danny the Champion of the World!
Danny and his devoted father live in a caravan and operate the petrol station and garage. When Danny turns nine he is devastated to find out about his father’s secret passion for pheasant-poaching in the estate of the nasty, greedy Victor Hazell, the local wealthy landowner. One night, Danny awakes to find his father has not returned from a night of poaching. Fearing that his father may be in danger, Danny sets off to rescue him. Soon, with a little help from the village, Danny finds himself the mastermind behind the most incredible and exciting plot ever attempted against Victor Hazell.
