Josh Baskin is sick of being a shy little kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become “big.” To his shock, his wish is granted. After an understandably awkward beginning, Josh is forced to do “adult” things, like getting a job and a girlfriend. In the end, he discovers that there’s much more to being an adult than he bargained for and learns that we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own way.

This musical is based on the classic 1987 motion picture, featuring a witty, moving and insightful book by John Weidman (Assassins; Pacific Overtures; Road Show) and a dazzling, energetic, heartfelt, contemporary score by David Shire and Richard Maltby, Jr. Big The Musical is a perfect show for audiences of all ages!

Come join us for a nostalgic nod to the 80s, some catchy tunes and support the talent of local and surrounding communities.
