Hot on the heels of last summer’s hugely successful production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, BBLOC once again hop aboard an out-of-the-ordinary vehicle to bring you a fantastic, family-friendly musical adventure.
Based on the much-loved 1968 film version of Ian Fleming's children's book and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a ‘Truly Scrumptious’ blockbuster which promises to delight its audiences.
We follow the fortunes of the eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts, who 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 covets 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, and rescue all the children of Vulgaria.
Filled with amazing stage spectacle, superb costumes, unforgettable songs - including the Academy Award-nominated title song - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, is a high-flying, fantasmagorical, fun-filled, not to be missed adventure from start to finish.
