Auditions for BIG the Musical
By Maltby and Shire
Coastal Repertory Theatre

Coastal Rep is proud to announce auditions for the hilarious, loveable musical BIG! Did you love the classic 1987 movie starring Tom Hanks? Just wait until you see the musical! This is a family friendly smash hit full of high energy singing and dancing!

Josh Baskin is sick of being an awkward kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become “big.” To his shock his wish is granted. After an awkward beginning, Josh is forced to do grown up things like getting a job and girlfriend. In the end he discovers there is much more to being an adult than he bargained for, and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time.
