Adapted from the much-loved book by Roald Dahl, George's Marvellous Medicine is a spectacular live show for the whole family.

On a good day, George can't stand his Grandma. She complains all the time, she's mean and she smells funny. On this particular day, Grandma is much more annoying than usual and George has had enough. Wanting to put an end to her constant nagging, he creates a special medicine, greater than any medicine in the history of the world. What he doesn't expect is that this medicine may actually work...

A brilliant team brings you a brand-new stage adaptation from the wacky mind of the World's No. 1 Storyteller.  George's Marvellous Medicine is packed to the rafters with mischief, music, magic and mammoth laughs.

Divide children into groups. Set up a carousel of activities in which children investigate how Roald Dahl skilfully manipulates words to achieve extraordinary effects. Activity one: Children read extract one independently, then invite one or two to read it aloud. Which words rhyme? Is there any rhyming pattern to the poem? Prompt them to notice that it’s written in rhyming couplets. Why do children think Dahl used rhyming couplets? What effect does this have on the reader?

Activity three: Introduce the term ‘onomatopoeia’ if children don’t know it. Ask children to define the word ‘onomatopoeia’. Why do they think Roald Dahl has used onomatopoeia in his poem? Ask children to highlight all the noisy (onomatopoeic) words in extract one, then to write down as many noisy words as they can think of to match the pictures on RESOURCE 2: SOUND SCORCERY.

Invite children to write their own magic medicine poem on RESOURCE 3: MY PERILOUS POTION; they should use what they’ve written on resources one and two to help them.
