Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest…and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him—most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find 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 going to the theatre—for an experience that’s richer, funnier and bigger than life itself.

Sara Schoch directs the production and leads the artistic team consisting of: Tom Baroco, music director, Holly Griffin Dixon, set design; Kristen Taylor, costume design; Brittany Rappise ('10); Joshua Heming, lighting design; Cole Hudson, asst. wig design/makeup design.
