We are excited to announce that our 2019 Performing Arts Camp show is  Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!

Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the beloved 1968 film version of Ian Fleming’s children’s book, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one family-friendly blockbuster that audiences will find “Truly Scrumptious.”

An eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts sets about restoring an old race car from a scrap heap with the help of his children, Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car has magical properties, including the ability to float and take flight. Trouble occurs when the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself. The family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and batty Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher.

Filled with amazing stage spectacle and unforgettable songs, including the Academy Award-nominated title song, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a high-flying, fun-filled adventure for the entire family.

The Young People’s Theatre Project is made up of teachers, actors, directors, writers, and technicians who have all benefited from opportunities in educational theatre and want to share their experience with as many people as possible.

The Young People’s Theatre Project is made up of young people, who have “graduated” through the various Project programs, and are now returning to both gain and share new experiences by working as volunteers or staff members.

The Young People’s Theatre Project is indeed an ever-expanding community of young people of all ages as we expand our work to include participants as young as 6 or 7 and as old as 67.
