Edward Bloom has lived a full and fantastical life, populated by witches, giants, and mermaids, marked by true love that stops time in its tracks, and framed by heroics that push the limits of believability. His adult son, Will, is no longer amused by his father’s fantastical tales, insisting on a rational rather than a fantastical account of one’s life. When Edward’s health declines, and Will learns that he and his wife, Josephine, will have a son of their own, Will decides to find out his father’s “true” life story, once and for all. Big Fish is a heartfelt, powerful, and truly magical musical about fathers, sons, and the stories that we use to define our identities. With spine-tinglingly beautiful music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, and a funny, heartwarming book by John August, Big Fish is a magnificent “big fish” of a tale, itself -- spectacular, fantastical, and overflowing with love.

Upcoming Events

A Middle School Double Feature:
Amazing Adventures of the Marvelous Monkey King
and 
Tales of Trickery
Friday, March 16 at 7:00 pm
Saturday, March 17 at 7:00 pm
In the NWSA Charles LaBorde Theatre

Tickets Available at the Door:  $5 Students/Adults

Join us for a double feature presented by our talented Middle School Theatre Students. 

Amazing Adventures of the Marvelous Monkey King,  a Short Children's Play by Elizabeth Wong features Performance Company Class 2017-2018. The mischievous Chinese superhero The Monkey King comes to life in this energetic and charming play where Chinese Opera and hip-hop collide. Between finding and losing a home, getting kicked out of school, and battling with a one-horned ogre, the naughty Monkey King somersaults into the future on his adventures, where he hears hip-hop music and gets jiggy with it. After much dancing, battles and heroics, the impish Monkey King triumphs over his adversaries -- and learns about leadership, responsibility, and forgiveness in the process!

The Middle School Play for the NCTC competition is Tales of Trickery, A Triad of Comic Indonesian Folk Tales by Kim Alan Wheetley. Mythical beasts, colorful costumes, rhythmic music and Balinese masks weave an exotic spell in this fanciful blend of three comic Indonesian folktales. In The Widow and the Wealthy Neighbor, a single actor portrays a poor widow, a bumbling servant and a miserly neighbor in a comic tale of greed. A scheming monkey plays its mischief on a legendary beast, long of hair but short of patience, in The Monkey and the Barong. The Buffalo and the Bell pits three notorious cheats against a simple-minded farmer, his water buffalo and a magic bell. The traditional gamelan orchestra is an integral part of a Topeng performance, with the musicians and performers taking their cues from each other.

Tickets are Available at the Door!
