Roald Dahl Splendiferous Showdown Coming to Sandwich!

  • Celebrate Roald Dahl’s 100th Birthday

Monday, September 12 at Oak Ridge School

Titcomb’s Bookshop is once again supporting our schools by bringing us this celebration – a fast-paced, live interactive trivia event to celebrate the 100th birthday of one of our favorite authors, Roald Dahl. Roald Dahl’s books include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Witches, James and the Giant Peach, and many many more.

This hilarious performance will be brought to our third and fourth graders by Penguin Young Readers and the acclaimed education and media group, Story Pirates. The nerdy but loveable Dunston Shufflebottom and his prickly boss, Lord Curley Woodhead, host a live game show using fun facts, trivia, and challenges to celebrate Roald Dahl’s books.  The performance culminates in these wacky characters performing a brand new, improvised story based on ideas from the audience and inspired by the themes, language and hilarity of this iconic author.

We are one of only 26 schools who will be visited by the Roald Dahl Splendiferous Showdown bus. Pretty exciting!
