BWW Review: CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG at the Fort Wayne Civic Theatre Photo BWW Review: CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG at the Fort Wayne Civic Theatre
by Tara Olivero - Aug 1, 2019

Walking into the Fort Wayne Civic Theatre's production of CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I watched the 1968 movie exactly once in my childhood, and all that I remembered was having nightmares about the Childcatcher. That said, I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed the show. Whether people decide to see it out of a love of old-fashioned musicals or whether they're looking for a fun afternoon or evening with their kids, chances are high that audience members will delight in this whimsical production.
