Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Adult Registration — Verona Area Community Theater
IN spite of the dreadful title, "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," which opened yesterday at the Loew's State 2 Theater, is a fast, dense, friendly children's musical, with something of the joys of singing together on a team bus on the way to a game. The film is based on a fantasy by Ian Fleming, and its violence level just after the credits is fantastically high a car drives off the road and explodes, a child is nearly run over, the breaking of an adult bargain is treated as a desirable thing. After that it settles down and becomes a happy anarchical story within a story about cars, kids, adults, love and candy. Dick Van Dyke plays a gentle, nutty, apparently widowed father, who invents fine Rube Goldberg devices that serve eggs at breakfast.
Auditions – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (Adult)
By Bob Evans Jun 25, , am 0. Opening weekend suffered one rain-out and threatening conditions on Friday and Sunday nights. A cast with a mix of new and previous TTIP performers gave the show a nice texture while grooming others for subsequent parts. All the actors gave good performances, but those particularly stood out. The car needs to float and fly.
If there was one thing we wouldn't stand for, when we were nine years old, it was any of that love stuff between the cowboy and his girl. Let Roy Rogers so much as lay a hand on Dale Evans -- let him even look interested -- and we'd whistle, boo and stomp our feet. What did they think they were doing, anyway, mushing around like that when there were adventures to be had, and posses to form, and miles to ride before sunset? Likewise, we had very strict standards about the sorts of songs we'd tolerate around campfires. We didn't mind Pat Buttram, or even a reprise of "Cool Water" from the Sons of the Pioneers, but Rex Allen was always singing love songs to the rancher's daughter and we learned plenty fast to steer clear of old Rex.
