CYT North Idaho Presents BIG THE MUSICAL, Now thru 8/19
Christian Youth Theater - North Idaho is producing their first summer musical with adults playing adults in BIG THE MUSICAL, tonight, August 9 through August 19, 2012.
Big the Musical, was chosen because of its great upbeat musical numbers, large cast of characters, young and old, and it's heart warming story of a young boy who wishes to be grown and upon fulfillment of that wish, discovers there's much more to being an adult than he's bargained for. Nearly everyone around in the late 80's and early 90's remembers fondly the movie," Big," starring Tom Hanks.
This Broadway musical has been described by USA Today, as "the ideal family musical."
Dates and times are as follows: August 9, 10, 11, 17, & 18 at 7 p.m. and August 11, 12, 18 & 19 at 3 p.m.
