Watch out for the flying car swooping into Milton Keynes Theatre when the fantasmagorical musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang visits next month.
One of the world’s favourite musicals, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang visits from Wednesday May 4 to Saturday May 14 and will have audiences of all ages flying high with its mixture of madness, intrigue and exuberance.
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?
Having broken all box office records in the West End, this fun-filled production from the team that brought you Fiddler on the Roof and The King and I promises laughs, magic galore and favourite songs including Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Hushabye Mountain and Truly Scrumptious - and Chitty herself!
Caractacus Potts will be played Casualty and Joseph star Lee Mead while Michelle Collins swap soap land for a different kind of fantasy world as
Another Eastenders star Shaun Williamson plays Lord Scrumptious and Baron Bomburst.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang has music and lyrics by Richard M Sherman and Robert B Sherman, who were also responsible for Mary Poppins, The Slipper and the Rose, The Aristocats and The Jungle Book.
The Sherman Brothers have won two Academy Awards with a further nine nominations, two Grammy Awards and they have received 21 gold and platinum albums.
