In our 32nd season, Music Theatre of Denton is proud to bring Big Fish the Musical to life for our final show of the year at the historic Campus Theatre. Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film Colombia Motion Picture written by John August, directed by Tim Burton, with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa the Music Theatre of Denton invites you to Dream Bigger! Produced by David K. Pierce, Directed by Buster Maloney, Assistant Director Sarah Nobles, Music Director John Norine, Jr., Choreographer Emily Leekha, Stage Manager Elizabeth Cantrell, and Assistant Stage Manager Paul Key.

Big Fish the Musical centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, Big Fish is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre – for an experience that’s richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.
