“There is something very special about this story. Rarely does a piece of theatre offer students an opportunity to explorer the boundaries of the human journey. Through magical musical numbers, poetic characters and situations and creative stagecraft, BIG FISH is sure to offer a musical experience that will challenge audiences to look their life through a hero’s eyes.” Says, Director, Erik Ball
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 spinetinglingly 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.
Performances of BIG FISH the Musical can be seen at 7p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings, and 4p.m. for matinee performances on Sundays, from January 22 – 31. Tickets start at $6 and can be purchased at www.FaithConservatory.com
