A widowed, absent-minded, unsuccessful inventor saves a “has been” racing car from the scrap heap at the request of his darling children.

Who would not want such a fantastic car? The Baron and Baroness of Vulgaria certainly do! The royals hire two bumbling spies to kidnap the inventor, but instead they grab Grandpa Potts. The mission becomes to save Grandpa, but in doing so, they must avoid being taken by the Childcatcher whose job is to “make Vulgaria a more beautiful place to live” by making sure no children roam the streets freely! The whole family will love this fantasmagorical Broadway musical! Visit the Town Theatre website for more information!

Town’s 92nd Season presented by BB&T of South Carolina and BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang sponsored by Chick-fil-A (10136 Two Notch and 5440 Forest Dr.); Lexington Medical Center; and the car by Jim Hudson Lexus.
