Hopewell Valley Central High School once again welcomes the public to the Performing Arts Center on March 4, 5, 11 and 12 for an exhilarating adventure into the southern wilderness with Big Fish!
Big fish focuses on the epic adventures and impossible stories Edward Bloom tells his son Will. Will sets out to uncover the truth behind tall tales and discovers an extraordinary life filled with mermaids, witches, giants and the circus! On his father’s deathbed, the deep emotions of true love emerge in his devotion to his wife Sandra and the passage of time through the eyes of fathers, sons and the stories we choose to tell and believe on the dreaming, loving and living bigger.
Music accompanies wild adventures while Edward Bloom’s larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him. But their son, Will, about to have a child, is determined to uncover the truth behind his father’s epic tales. There are beautiful ballads full of heartbreak and love, and songs that hold lessons for all. It’s colorful, fantastical and confusing, just like the story’s complex characters.
The show’s director, Katie Rochon, explains why this show is a must-watch: “I chose this show because it’s about family and love, and throughout the past two very difficult years, I think that we all connected deeply to the importance of these two things in our lives. This show is truly beautiful and it felt like a good time to bring something really uplifting to our stage.
All performances will be live on stage at the Performing Arts Center at Hopewell Valley Central High School – 259 Pennington-Titusville Road, Pennington, and in accordance with all HVRSD guidelines.
Tickets are only sold online $15 / $10 for students and seniors at https://www.showtix4u.com/event-details/61321 Tickets are only sold online through www.showtix4u.com. Photo credit: Maria O’Leary Photography
