Other adult and children will be cast for various ensemble roles.

Come with a song prepared, preferably one from the show. If you plan to sing a song that is NOT from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, please bring sheet music. You will also be asked to dance as well as read dialogue. Closed-toe shoes are preferred for dancing purposes. Sides will be available at The Center administrative office after May 1.

Please note: The race of the characters is not pivotal to the plot. BCS desires to provide theatrical and cultural experiences for our audiences and cast members that are reflective of the community that we serve. 

As always, backstage and technical crews are needed.

Questions? Call or text Shirley (producer) at 979-236-1413 or call 979-388-8345.

ABOUT THE SHOW:

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!

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.

ABOUT THE SHOW:

For the past year, Brazosport Center Stages volunteers have been creating an Original Documentary theatre piece entitled The More Things Change…, based on the stories, lived experiences and actual words of people from our community. Told through the lens of the group of artists who created the work, the play seeks to learn about change (both big and small, personal and societal), and how those changes impact the lives of everyday people.

 

A new format for BCS, this two-year documentary project is intended to share the stories gathered through the ensemble’s performances. Because these are reflections from the storytellers’ individual lives, content includes personal topics such as religion, grief, divorce, sexuality & racism. The show is recommended for adult audiences.
