Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: 10-12 June 2016

Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang-2016

A fantastic musical adventure about an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Face Productions’ summer show Chitty Chitty Bang Bang the musical, based on the 1968 film version of Ian Fleming’s children’s book, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins) is one adventure that audiences will find Truly Scrumptious.

An eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts finds an old race car on a scrap heap and sets about restoring it with the help of his children Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car has magical properties including the ability to float and fly. Trouble occurs when the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself. The family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher in the mysterious land of Vulgaria.

Filled with unforgettable songs, including the Academy Award nominated title song, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a high-flying fun-filled adventure that first opened in London’s West End in 2002 and was the longest-ever running show at the London Palladium. The Face Productions show is directed by Candice Caalsen, who headed last year’s award-winning Legally Blonde.

In addition to the full version, Face Academy offers an abridged interpretation to showcase younger performing arts talents in Hong Kong.

Annie

Annie - HK Chorus Society

Annie the popular comic strip heroine takes centre stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals presented by the Hong Kong Chorus Society and starring Tiana Wong and Bonita Wong as Annie.

“Annie” is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks and his personal secretary Grace Farrell.

“Annie” has proven a sure-fire crowd-pleaser, with its upbeat ending, a bright tuneful score, a wonderful cast of characters and a classic villainess that audiences love to hate. Musical Director Henry Shek and choreographer Nikki Ng bring this international sensation to life on 2 October at the HK Cultural Centre, Concert Hall.

Featuring
Annie: Tiana Wong (Act 1), Bonita Wong (Act 2)
Oliver Warbucks: Eric Huynh
Miss Hannigan: Ernestine Ho

Music Director: Henry Shek
