Big the Musical
Sep 21 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

The classic 1987 motion picture fantasy bursts onto the stage. Big is a perfect show for audiences of all ages! Josh Baskin is sick of being an awkward kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become “big.” To his shock, his wish is granted. After an understandably awkward beginning, Josh is forced to do “adult” things, like getting a job and a girlfriend. In the end, he discovers that there’s much more to being an adult than he bargained for and learns that we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time. Complete with Zoltar, a giant floor piano and stand-out roles for adults and children, Big is a family-friendly smash-hit that is full of high-energy singing and dancing. This show has an all adult cast. Appropriate for all ages. Please note that due to the nature of theater ticket sales, tickets are nonrefundable.
