This beloved family musical about a wacky inventor and a flying car comes to new life thanks to the Colorado Ballet Society’s theater program, which debuted with a production of The Music Man last year. With a cast of 50 actors from seasoned professionals to talented kids, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang also offers families the chance to act together. Chad E. Davis in the role of inventor Caractacus Potts, will work alongside his daughter Grace Davis, playing Potts’ daughter Jemima, while Grace’s mother and Chad’s wife, a professional dog trainer, has trained the family dog Pickles for his role onstage as Edison. This group is one of a few family units taking the stage this week in what is sure to be a delightful and warm family show. Director Ford Tackett says: “I’m looking forward to seeing this talent being shared with audiences, who no doubt will be touched by the comedy, quirkiness and affection that this play brings to life.”
