Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. An eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts sets about restoring an old race car from a scrap heap with the help of his children, Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car has magical properties, including the ability to float and take flight. Trouble occurs when the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself. The family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and batty Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher. Filled with amazing stage spectacle and unforgettable songs, including the Academy Award-nominated title song, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a high-flying, fun-filled adventure for the entire family.
HCO Musicals begin their 20th year
The popularity of the HCO musical productions has continued to grow, providing high quality and family friendly performances to sell-out crowds year after year. These productions were established to support the needs of HCO in serving people with disabilities; they have become a part of local community life and bring together some of the strongest talent in the Winona area. HCO strives to provide a quality musical production that integrates individuals with disabilities into the performing arts as a means of enhancing life in our community for all. By bringing the quality that has become associated with HCO productions to this wonderful show, we are confident that we will be able to engage large audiences with the same enthusiasm as we have in past years.
While our yearly production acts as a fundraiser to assist us providing much needed services, supplies, and equipment for those we support, its primary purpose is to promote the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in our daily lives. Our musicals demonstrate that individuals with disabilities offer valued contributions to society through integration of our clients into the community theater event as cast members, backstage crew members, and other volunteering roles behind the scenes.
If you’d like to get involved with this great community experience, you can learn more more about volunteer opportunities specific to our annual musical productions or donate funds to assist us in our work.
