Whidbey Children’s Theater announces the opening of their third show of the season, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to Friday, Feb. 27.
Originally slated to open Feb. 20, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang will now run two weekends, from Friday, February 27 to Sunday, March 8.
Director Kathryn Lynn Morgen, and Cait Cassée, Executive Director came to the decision Wednesday night.
“It is our first and foremost mission that kids feel confident when they get on stage and that they have fun amidst all of the hard work and dedication they bring to productions.” said Morgen. “One of the hard realities we have had to face in this process is having only a handful of rehearsals where the complete cast was present. Mix that with one of the most complicated scripts to reach our stage and we have a very challenging equation.”
Of the decision, Cassée added, “This decision creates that supportive net of safety for our actors, who will now be able to take the stage with a greater sense of joy and creativity. They are an amazing cast and crew. There is such a dedication and commitment to their characters—it’s very impressive and really delightful to see.”
Patrons who have already secured tickets for this weekend (Friday, Feb. 20 – Sunday, Feb. 22) will be contacted by Whidbey Children’s Theater to make arrangements for honoring their purchase.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang opens Friday, Feb. 27 at 7:00 pm and runs weekends through Sunday, March 8. For tickets and information, visit www.whidbeychildrenstheater.org
