2013 is shaping up to be a big year for musical theatre aficionados!
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Once the infectious title song of this family musical gets into your head, you will spend days getting it out again! Borrow a 'stunt' child to take along to this kid-friendly show. Following award-winning seasons in London and New York, 'Chitty Chitty' opens in Melbourne in January 2013, after its 'out of town try-out' in Sydney from November 2012
Borrow a friend's copy of the heartwarming 1968 film, upon which this show is based, which was in turn taken from the novel Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang: The Magical Car by Ian 'James Bond 007' Fleming. The musical features a charming score from the legendary song-writing duo the Sherman Brothers ('Mary Poppins').
An all-star cast recently announced includes: David Hobson, popular opera favourite; Rachael Beck, one of Australia's finest leading ladies; George Kapiniaris, our favourite 'wog boy'; Alan Brough, of 'Spicks and Specks' fame; and many more. Best of all, it features a flying car! Look out Mary Poppins!
