An extraordinary musical that celebrates the magic of theatre and the power of a great story. 

Based on the novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, Big Fish tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some!

Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him. But his son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales.

Recommended for ages 9 and up. Big Fish contains some frank discussion of death, childbirth, and light frights from giants, witches, and the town bully. Children 5 and up are allowed in the theatre.
