From Music Theatre International, Chitty is “a high-flying, fun-filled adventure for the entire family. Based on the beloved 1968 film version of Ian Fleming’s children’s book, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one family-friendly blockbuster that audiences will find Truly Scrumptious.” Home and Community Options wants you to be a part of it!
