GAYLORD — Gaylord Community Productions recently announced that their annual August musical production is “Big Fish.” The production will have four performances at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 9-11 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 12, at the Alan L. Gornick Auditorium.
This year Gaylord Community Productions chose a uniquely different show in their selection of “Big Fish.” Now, in 23 years of production, GCP decided to shake things up. Not a household name, “Big Fish” is about a Edward Bloom, a traveling salesperson, husband and father.
“This year is different,” says Sarah Peterson, president. “The leading character in ‘Big Fish’ is a hard-working traveling salesman (husband and father) who comes home with stories about the characters (real or imagined) he met on any particular day.”
Stage director Laura Hotelling states, “The show is like an Edward Bloom Odyssey.” Edward lives life to the fullest… and then some. Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him. Yet, the son of Edward and Edward’s wife are determined to find the truth behind his epic tales.
Tickets are available at Seams Like New (now known as Lady Latte) 130 W. Main St., downtown Gaylord. Ironically located next to (fish store). Prices are $15 for adults; $12 for students, seniors and military. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org; (231) 546-3889.
