Big, The Musical

Big, The Musical
A frustrated adolescent magically becomes an adult, discovering life is not simply child's play.

The classic 1987 motion picture fantasy bursts onto the stage in the unforgettable theatrical experience, Big The Musical. Featuring a witty, moving, and insightful book by John Weidman (Assassins, Pacific Overtures, Road Show) and a dazzling, energetic, heartfelt, contemporary score by David Shire and Richard Maltby, Jr. (Baby, Closer Than Ever, Starting Here, Starting Now) Big is a perfect show for audiences of all ages!

Josh Baskin is sick of being an awkward kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become "big". To his shock, his wish is granted. After an understandably awkward beginning, Josh is forced to do "adult" things like getting a job and a girlfriend. In the end he discovers there's much more to being an adult than he's bargained for, and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time.

Complete with Zoltar, a giant floor piano and stand out roles for adults and children, Big is a great choice for theatres looking for a family friendly smash hit full of high-energy singing and dancing.
