RPG Productions is proud to present the Australian Premiere of BIG FISH (12 Chairs Version) at Hayes Theatre Co from 18 April to 14 May 2017. It is the company’s first main stage production.

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH centres on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some!

Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales.

Overflowing with heart, humour and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre – for an experience that’s richer, funnier and bigger than life itself.
