Aaron Talley stars as Edward Bloom and Margo Heine as Sandra Templeton in “Big Fish” opening this weekend.
The Fauquier Community Theatre presents “Big Fish,” a musical with themes of fatherhood and mortality, May 4 to 20.
The play follows Edward Bloom, a story-telling traveling salesman whose larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him, including his wife Sandra.
But, his adult son, Will, is determined to discover the “true” life story behind his father’s fantastical stories before time runs out.
Performances will take place at Hope Church, 4173 Bludau Drive, in Vint Hill near the community theatre.
“This show, along with our creative journey to bring Big Fish to life, is a reminder of the preciousness of life and the people we meet along the way,” Director Scott Heine said. “Sometimes our choices and experiences don’t work out the way we hope, and sometimes there’s a need for reconciliation along the way. But for those who are determined to be the heroes of their stories, ‘it all ends well. This much I know.’ ”
Music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Based on the book by Daniel Wallace.
