Big Fish
  • Big Fish the musical was the musical for 2016 starring Riley Smith, Brandon Bjerke and Rachel Clark. It is a musical about a man telling all the crazy adventures he had in his life to his son. The stories includes witches, a giant, a werewolf, and many other unbelievable things. As the son grows older, he stops believing the stories and doesn't trust his father. However, he ends up meeting all the creatures that his father had always talked about and is surprised to find out they are all real. The musical is also a movie. The cast had an amazing time throughout the entire experience. With one of the largest groups of kids the musical's ever had, the show proved to be a major success. Lots of friendships were made, and many more were strengthened. The entire experience was filled with laughter and joy as everyone came together to make a great show. The auditorium was almost filled every single night, and the community loved it.
