Join Building Bridges Community Arts Theatre as they take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the beloved 1968 film version of Ian Fleming's children's book, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one family-friendly blockbuster that audiences will find ‘Truly Scrumptious.’

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. They soon discover the car has magical properties, including the ability to float and take flight. Trouble occurs when the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself. The family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and batty Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher.

Filled with amazing stage spectacle and unforgettable songs, including the Academy Award-nominated title song, ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ is a high-flying, fun-filled adventure for the entire family. Fresh from their successful run of ‘The Sound of Music’, Building Bridges are delighted to be back to blow you away with this timeless musical classic featuring the very best of local talent.
