Engadine Musical Society Inc presents BIG FISH - A magical family fable with reel heart.
Based on 1998 novel and the 2003 Tim Burton film of the same name, Big Fish is a magical family musical that follows the extraordinary life of Edward Bloom, as he chooses to tell it.
Tall tales come as natural as breathing to Edward, a traveling salesman with a natural flair for charm. But what ignites his son William’s imagination as a child only pushes him away the older he gets. As Will embarks on his own journey towards fatherhood, he is forced to confront the issues he holds against his own father before it is too late to reconcile.
Big Fish is a powerfully emotional musical about legacy and the bond between a father and son.
