Big Fish performances will be rescheduled for a later date.
The Wayzata Community Church Good Works Community Theater is proud to present our 20th Anniversary Production, BIG FISH!
What’s your story?
What impact did the Community around you have on your journey?
These are questions asked and answered in the beautiful tale of a father and a son called “Big Fish.”
The answers? Edward Bloom was shaped by the people he met along that fantastical road called “life”. He was drawn to those who were “different” and sometimes ostracized by society, yet Edward saw them not only as equals, but as trusted confidants and best friends. They shaped not only who he was, but who the generations after him would become, and how they would live their lives.
As a travelling salesman, Edward is on the road more than he is at home. At the completion of each trip he tells his son, Will, the stories of the amazing people he has met. These stories are based on fact but are told in such a colorful way that as Will grows older, he sees them as fiction. When Edward’s health declines, and Will learns that he and his wife, Josephine, will have a son of their own, Will decides to find out his father’s “true” life story, once and for all.
Big Fish is a heartfelt, powerful, and truly magical musical about a parent, a child, best friends, community, and the stories that we use to define our identities. This is the 20th Anniversary of Good Works Community Theater. Producing this show within a community theater that “lives” within a church makes for a beautiful opportunity. Wayzata Community Church exists to provide community to anyone and everyone who walks through the doors.
This family-friendly production is a musical that will touch the heart, speak to the soul, and bring a laugh and a tear to everyone.
