Big, The Musical TYA


Show Credits: Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr.
Book by John Weidman
Music by David Shire

Description: The classic 1987 motion picture fantasy bursts onto the stage in the unforgettable Theatre for Young Audiences version of Big The Musical. Featuring a witty, moving, and insightful book by John Weidman (Assassins, Pacific Overtures, Road Show) and a dazzling, energetic, heartfelt, contemporary score by David Shire and Richard Maltby, Jr. (Baby, Closer Than Ever, Starting Here, Starting Now) Big TYA is a perfect show for audiences of all ages!

Josh Baskin is sick of being an awkward kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become "big". To his shock, his wish is granted. After an understandably awkward beginning, Josh is forced to do "adult" things like getting a job and a girlfriend. In the end he discovers there's much more to being an adult than he's bargained for, and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time.

This condensed version reduces the running time and cast size while spotlighting the touching friendship of Josh and Billy as they learn what it's really like to be big. Complete with Zoltar, a giant floor piano, and stand out roles for adults and children, Big TYA is a great choice for theatres looking for a family friendly smash hit full of high-energy singing and dancing.
