Big Noise 2017 to Present Romantic Adventure BIG FISH THE MUSICAL

Big Noise Theatre Company, a division of Winnetka Theatre, announces the Spring show of their 2017 season, Big Fish, the Musical. Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed Tim Burton film, Big Fish centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest, and then some! Edward's incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him - most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father's epic tales. Overflowing with humor and heart, Big Fish is an extraordinary recent Broadway musical that's richer, funnier, and BIGGER than life itself!
