Big The Musical TYA

Big The Musical TYA
A frustrated adolescent magically becomes an adult, discovering that life is not simply child's play.

The classic 1987 motion picture fantasy bursts onto the stage in the unforgettable Theatre for Young Audiences version of Big The Musical. Featuring a witty, moving and insightful book by John Weidman (Assassins, Pacific Overtures, Road Show) and a dazzling, energetic, heartfelt, contemporary score by David Shire and Richard Maltby, Jr. (Baby; Closer Than Ever; Starting Here, Starting Now) Big The Musical TYA is a perfect show for audiences of all ages!

Josh Baskin is sick of being an awkward kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become "big". To his shock, his wish is granted. After an understandably awkward beginning, Josh is forced to do "adult" things, like getting a job and a girlfriend. In the end, he discovers that there's much more to being an adult than he's bargained for and he learns that we must all grow up at our own pace and in our own time.

This condensed version reduces the running time and cast size while spotlighting the touching friendship of Josh and Billy as they learn what it's really like to be big. Complete with Zoltar, a giant floor piano and stand-out roles for adults and children, Big The Musical TYA is a great choice for those theatres that are looking for a family-friendly smash-hit full of high-energy singing and dancing.
