The most fantasmagorical musical of all time flies into New Theatre Oxford for one week only!
This is a brand-new production of this much-loved family favourite, directed by Thom Southerland (Titanic, Parade), choreographed by Karen Bruce (BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, The Bodyguard) and designed by Morgan Large (Newsies, Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat).
This ravishing award-winning musical is bursting with unforgettable songs by the Sherman Brothers, including Toot Sweets, Hushabye Mountain, Truly Scrumptious and, of course, the Academy Award-nominated title song, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Based on Ian Fleming’s timeless story for children and later made into the famous 1968 film, we meet absent-minded inventor Caractacus Potts (Adam Garcia), who restores a broken-down old racing car with the help of his children Jemima and Jeremy.
Soon, the family discover the car has magical powers, and along with the delectable Truly Scrumptious, they end up on a fantastical adventure to far-off lands. Their heartwarming journey makes Chitty Chitty Bang Bang a fun-filled hit for all the family.
Don’t let it take off without you!
