The iconic flying car, a brand new set, and some amazing special effects. All that, and more will feature on the latest family adventure. Taylorian Productions brings another classic to the Isle of Man. In fact, the local company Microgaming sponsors the show again. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang lands on Gaiety Theatre’s stage on 6 August.
Second year, second show
The Isle of Man game developer has an ongoing affair with theatre. Indeed, last year Microgaming sponsored another project. Back then, it was the adaptation of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. And this time, their cooperation brings another classic musical piece to the island. And of course a lot of entertainment too!
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a popular children book by Ian Fleming. The musical draws inspiration from its 1968 movie and as you know the film featured some famous melodies. With years, they became part of our popular culture. The classic Hushabye Mountain is one of the most memorable song. But it’s also the song that gave the name to the musical. It brought to the creators of the score, the Sherman Brothers, an Oscar nomination.
Featuring local talent
Additionally, both companies are proud to bring attention to local talent. Amid great expectations amongst the audience, the gig will feature Laura Pigott. She will play the role of Truly Scrumptious in the latest stage adaptation of the classic movie. Kate Moughtin, Senior Brand Manager at Microgaming, expects a dazzling show. On the other hand, Taylorian said it’s an honour to count with the company’s partnership once again. “Without their support, we could not afford the production,” confirmed Producer Matt James. In fact, he believes the show will entertain not only Isle of Man audiences. But he also thinks that tourists will love it! He even went as far as saying that the piece is a must-see this summer.
