Characters are going Big on stage in New Mills

PERFORMANCE: Seb Green plays Josh Baskin.

Big the Musical will be gracing the stage in New Mills this week.

The stage show, based on the famous 1988 film starring Tom Hanks, will be performed at New Mills Art Theatre.  

Josh Baskin, a 12-year-old boy, makes a wish into a mysterious ‘Zoltar Speaks’ machine at a carnival.  

Josh wakes up next morning to find he is no longer a boy but a man. Then, with help from his best friend Billy, he tries to cope with his new-found adulthood, while searching for the machine so that he can wish himself back - and more.  

Big is a funny, heart-warming musical, a show for all the family. 

Evening performances will start at 7.15pm tonight (Thursday); tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday (14 May). 

The matinee performance is at 2.15pm on Saturday (14 May).
