Book by JOHN AUGUST Music and Lyrics by ANDREW LIPPA
Based on the celebrated 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—most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart and humor, BIG FISH is an extraordinary musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre—for an experience that’s richer, funnier, and bigger than life itself.
Production: Actor's Youth Theatre
Director & Choreographer: Stephen Hohendorf-Parnell
Music Directors: Elise Stoffer & Tyler Thompson
This show was BIG in all aspects and the set was no exception. We needed to show different times in Edwards' life, feature various locations, create a shower of daffodils, and add a rotating platform. Our space was limited but we made it work with two sets of rolling panels that provided a variety of set configurations. We managed to pull it all together in only two weeks. Thank you to an incredible set crew.
