Limited Tickets Available for ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”
Abrams, WI Nov. 22, 2023: Abrams Spotlight Productions Inc. invites the community to its performance of the whimsical musical “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr.” A limited number of tickets are on sale now for this all-youth show. The musical, directed by Elizabeth Jolly-Haslitt, will be presented Nov. 30, Dec. 1-3 and Dec. 7-10 at the Nancy Byng Community Theater, 5852 Maple St., Abrams.
“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr.” features a whimsical puppet theater aesthetic. Not only does the design match the imaginative character of the musical, it also creatively accommodates the large case of 40 youth. Another innovative aspect of the production is the car itself. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is played by five actors. Jolly-Haslitt worked with the actors on movement and puppetry.
“The show has a vaudevillian feel, most noticeably in the spies and the fourth-wall-breaking child-catcher, but every character has some level of extra-heightened theatricality or suspension of disbelief,” said Jolly-Haslitt.
“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr.” tells the story of an eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts, who restores an old race car with the help of his children, Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car is magic and has the ability to float and take flight. When the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself, the family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher.
