Cork Opera House is delighted to announce our summer musical theatre production for 2020, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Following on from the success of Annie in 2017 and The Wizard of Oz in 2018, this iconic musical will hit the stage in top gear in a brand new high-flying production made in Cork by Cork Opera House.
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. With a fantastical flying car, a heartwarming love story, and a whole bunch of teamwork, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a fun-filled musical for all the family.
Packed with classic characters and songs, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang will deliver the quality our audiences have come to expect from Cork Opera House, with singing, dancing, laughs and special effects which will delight audiences of all ages. Join us for a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas!
