Hopewell Valley Central High School welcomes audiences back to the Performing Arts Center on March 4, 5, 11 and 12 for an exhilarating romp through the wilds of the south with Big Fish!
Big Fish centers on the epic adventures and impossible stories Edward Bloom tells to his son Will. Will sets out to find out the truth behind the tall tales and finds an extraordinary life full of mermaids, witches, giants and the circus! On his father’s deathbed, the sweeping emotions of true love emerge in his devotion to his wife Sandra and the passage of time through the eyes of fathers, sons, and the stories we choose to tell and believe about dreaming, loving and living bigger.
The music rides along the rollicking adventures as Edward Bloom’s larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him. But their son, Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find out the truth behind his father’s epic tales. There are gorgeous ballads full of heartbreak and love, and songs that hold lessons for all. It’s colorful, fantastical and confounding just like the intricate characters in the story.
The show’s Director, Katie Rochon explains why this show is a must see: “I chose this show because it’s about family and love, and throughout the very challenging past two years, I think that we have all connected deeply to the importance of those two things in our lives. This show is really beautiful and this felt like the right time to bring something truly uplifting to our stage.”
All performances will be live on stage in the Performing Arts Center at Hopewell Valley Central High School – 259 Pennington-Titusville Road, Pennington, and following all HVRSD guidelines.
Tickets are only sold online $15 / $10 for students and seniors at https://www.showtix4u.com/event-details/61321 Tickets are only sold online through www.showtix4u.com. Photo credit: Maria O’Leary Photography
