McGRATHPR.com – Americana Theatre Company (ATC), Plymouth’s professional theatre company, presents the endearing, captivating musical “Big Fish,” on select dates from July 13 through 30, at Spire Center for Performing Arts, 25 ½ Court Street, Plymouth. Performances are held on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 pm, with 2 pm matinees on Sundays. “Big Fish” book is by John August, with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, based on the novel by Daniel Wallace and written by John August’s Columbia Motion Picture.
Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, “Big Fish” articulates the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman living life to its fullest…and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone, most of all his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to discover the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart and humor, “Big Fish” is an extraordinary musical that reminds us why we love theatre – for an experience that’s richer, funnier, and bigger than life itself.
“We are always looking for a trifecta in our productions – can we produce the show with excellence? Will the production resonate with our audience members? Does it serve our core company well?” shares Derek Martin, show director and ATC founder. “Big Fish is a glorious yes to all three questions. At its core, the story explores the relationship of a father and his son. The power of story is transformative, and in this case, reconciliation, redemption, and healing save a desperately broken relationship. Audiences will recognize many of their favorite top-notch core company members – and enjoy some new and returning actors – all passionately collaborating to explore and expound this powerful tale.”
“Big Fish” features Nick Hancock as Edward Bloom, Kelly Ann Dunn as Sandra Bloom, Connor Northcutt as Will Bloom, Macy MacDiarmid as Josephine Bloom, Jude Sullivan as Young Will Bloom, Morgan Mena as Jenny Hill/TheWitch/Ensemble, Jesse M. Sullivan as Karl the Giant/Ensemble, David Friday as Amos Calloway/Ensemble, Jesse Winton as Don Price/Ensemble, Samuel Quinzon as Zachary Price/Ensemble, Erin Friday as Dr. Bennet/Ensemble, Linnea Remillard and Abby Kramer as Ensemble.
