Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
22 October - 26 October
Everyone’s favourite flying car is driving right into Peterborough for a ‘fantasmagorical’ musical for all the family. Based on the much-loved 1968 film, adapted from Ian Fleming’s novel, the Peterborough Operatic and Dramatic Society is proud to present the ‘truly scrumptious’ musical adaptation of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
An eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts, sets about restoring an old race car from a scrap heap with the help of his children, Jeremy and Jemima. But they soon discover the car has magical properties and can both take to the seas and the skies. Trouble brews however once the evil Baron Bomburst spots and desires the magic car for himself and Caractacus and the children must join forces with Truly Scrumptious and batty Grandpa to fight for their fine four-fended friend that’s become one of the family, all in between escaping the clutches of the villainous child catcher.
Featuring the unforgettable Sherman Brothers score, expect all the classic songs from the film including Me Ol’ Bam-boo, Hushabye Mountain, Toot Suites and of course the joyous title tune, along with plenty of rip-roaring dancing, musical sparkle and even a magical car that flies before your eyes.
