“Big - The musical” at Roche Players

“Big - The musical”
Music by David Shire
Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr
Book by John Weidman

The 1987 hit movie (starring Tom Hanks) bursts onstage in this vibrant, funny and touching musical. When frustrated adolescent Josh Baskin wishes he were "big" and wakes up the next morning a 30-year old man, he discovers there's much more to being an adult than he'd bargained for - and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time. Don't miss this brilliant musical adaption that the USA Today called "the ideal family musical."
