Liverpool date for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang tour
Fantasmagorical musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is flying back into the Liverpool Empire next year as part of a new UK tour.
The show comes to the Lime Street theatre from October 8-20, 2024. Tickets go on general sale this Thursday.
Absent-minded inventor Caractacus Potts restores a broken-down old racing car with the help of his children Jemima and Jeremy.
Soon the family discover the car has magical powers, and along with the delectable Truly Scrumptious, the family end up on a hilarious fantastical adventure to far off lands.
Based on Ian Fleming’s 1964 novel Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang: The Magical Car, which was later turned into a family favourite film, the musical features Sherman Brothers songs including Truly Scrumptious, Toot Sweets, Hushabye Mountain and the Oscar-nominated title track.
The new production is directed by Thom Southerland (Titanic, Parade), choreographed by Karen Bruce (BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, The Bodyguard) and with set and costume design by Morgan Large (Newsies, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat).
Casting is yet to be announced.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is at the Liverpool Empire from October 8-20, 2024. Tickets HERE
