Believe it or not, the holiday show at Kalamazoo Civic Theatre is right around the corner, and this year it's the high-flying, fun-filled adventure, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It's the story of Caractacus Potts, an eccentric inventor who takes on restoring an old race car with the help of his two children, Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover that this is no ordinary race car, but a vehicle capable of taking flight! Evil Baron Bomburst hears about this magical car and sets out to steal it for himself. With the help of Truly Scrumptious and Grandpa Potts, Caractacus and the children must outwit the Baron, the Baroness, and their devious henchman, the Child Catcher.

The Kalamazoo Civic Theatre's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang opens November 23rd and runs through December 9th, with evening and matinee performances. Tickets range from $15-$25.
