Take a phantasmagorical musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air!
Based on the beloved 1968 film version of Ian Fleming’s children’s book, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a family-friendly blockbuster that audiences will find “Truly Scrumptious” from start to finish. Can the loveable but whacky inventor, Potts, along with his two children and the gorgeous Truly Scrumptious outwit the bombastic Baron Bomburst who has decreed that all children be banished from his kingdom? What happens when the children are caught and imprisoned with other youngsters by the evil Childcatcher? Will it all end happily-ever-after? Don’t miss your chance to find out!
Following the spectacular success of Oliver! in 2017, and Grease in 2018 which both received outstanding reviews, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is our 17th Summer Youth Project and is directed for the third year running by “serial Hastings panto legend” Ben Watson.
Presented by the most talented young performers in the area, this amazing stage spectacle features the high-flying car herself, a full live band and unforgettable songs by the Sherman Brothers – including the Academy Award-nominated title song along with Toot Sweets, Me Ol’ Bamboo, Hushabye Mountain and many more.
It’s totally ‘Toot Sweet’ to miss!
“what a brilliant show! We are still reading the programme biogs, in awe at the age of some of the performers. We thought it was one of the very best shows we have ever seen, and to think it was performed by ‘amateur’ (but so not!) young people is just incredible” - Reaction to Grease - Summer Youth Project 2018
