BIG FISH

December 1 – 18, 2016

Inspired by the novel and hit Tim Burton film, Big Fish spotlights Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman whose biggest hope is to live life to its fullest. Edward’s tall-tales thrill everyone in earshot except his questioning son Will, about to be a father himself, who demands to know the truth behind Dad’s epic stories of giants, fortune-telling witches and mermaids. Full of heart, humor and inventive stagecraft, Big Fish offers an experience only theatre can – one that’s richer, funnier and bigger than life itself.

“Remarkable! A show for everyone who loves musicals. Don’t dare miss this!” — Variety
