Local teens to perform 'Big Fish' at Cortland High School

The following is a republished press release from the Cortland Youth Bureau and not an article written by The Cortland Voice...to submit a press release, community announcement or information about an upcoming event, email Editor Peter Blanchard at pblanchard@cortlandvoice.com.


Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, 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 heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre – for an experience that’s richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.

Presented by the Cortland Youth Bureau Summer Drama Program under the direction of Ben Wells, Big Fish runs for 4 performances, August 4th, 5th, 11th & 12th at 7pm in the Cortland High School auditorium. The cast features high school and college students from Cortland, Homer, McGraw and Dryden. Advance-sale tickets can be purchased at www.cybdrama.yapsody.com for $6 or for $8 at the door. All seating is general admission.
