Chitty Chitty Bang Bang | Walkerville Centre For The Creative Arts
February 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - March 2, 2019 @ 10:00 pm
Walkerville Centre For The Creative Arts presents Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, featuring everyone’s favourite flying car coming to life, inside the Walkerville Collegiate Institute Walkerville Auditorium on February 22, 23, 24, 28, March 1 & 2, 2019.
Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. 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.
Filled with amazing stage spectacle and unforgettable songs, including the Academy Award-nominated title song, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a high-flying, fun-filled adventure for the entire family.
Performances are February 22nd, 23rd 28th, March 1st and 2nd at 7 PM and February 24th at 2 pm.
Tickets are available at the door, $15 for adults, $10 for students.

The Walkerville Centre for the Creative Arts was established in 1989 as a place to give students, gifted in the arts, the opportunity to work in a more intense atmosphere, with students of equal calibre and with the same interests and to learn from a staff of people with a real expertise in each area.
