Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas! Eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts, encouraged by his children, Jeremy and Jemima, sets about restoring a formerly-famous-but-now-dilapidated old race car. They soon discover the car’s magic when the evil Baron Bomburst desires the car for himself and plots to get it. Caractacus, the children, and Grandpa Potts join forces with candy heiress Truly Scrumptious to outwit the dastardly Baron, his Baroness, and, their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher.

Based on the record-breaking West End production and the beloved film, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr is a high-flying, fun-filled adventure that will dazzle audiences OF ALL AGES with amazing stage spectacle and unforgettable songs (by the Sherman Brothers of Mary Poppins fame) including the Academy Award nominated title song. As always, attending schools will receive Educational Support Materials containing related vocabulary, lesson plans, activities, and exercises for use before and after the shows.

CPP's youth cast will bring this beloved story to life in a way that audiences for 25 years have come to value and appreciate.  It will be Truly Scrumptious!
