Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
The most fantasmagorical stage musical in the history of everything!
Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the beloved 1968 film version of the children’s book by Ian Fleming (James Bond), and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Charlotte’s Web, The Aristocats), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one family-friendly blockbuster that audiences will find ‘Truly Scrumptious.’
An eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts sets about restoring an old race car from a scrap heap with the help of his children Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car has magical properties including the ability to float and take flight. Trouble occurs when the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself. The family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and batty Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher.
Filled with amazing stage spectacle and unforgettable songs, including the Academy Award®-nominated title song, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a high-flying fun-filled adventure for the entire family!
