SYNOPSIS:
Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the record-breaking West End production and the beloved film, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang JR. is one blockbuster that audiences will find "Truly Scrumptious."

Eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts, sets about restoring an old race car with the help of his children Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car is magic, and has the ability to float and take flight. 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.

Filled with amazing stage spectacle and unforgettable songs, including the Academy Award nominated title song, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang JR. is a high-flying fun-filled adventure that will dazzle audiences and Broadway Junior Stars alike.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:
Caractacus Potts
Caractacus Potts is Jeremy and Jemima’s father. He is an eccentric inventor who cares deeply about his children. Cast an experienced performer with a great voice who is very comfortable onstage. The role was played by Dick Van Dyke in the film version, and he’s a great example: a charming, charismatic leading man with great comic timing.

Jeremy Potts
Jeremy and Jemima Potts are energetic children who are always up for an adventure. They are friends and do everything together, and their greatest wish is to save Chitty Chitty Bang Bang from the junkyard. Cast two performers who work well together and are good actors and singers. It’s helpful if these performers read as younger than Potts, Truly, and Grandpa onstage.

Grandpa
Grandpa loves Jeremy, Jemima, and Potts with all his heart.

Baroness
The Baron and Baroness are larger- than-life villains. Cast excellent performers who can act, sing, dance, and who aren’t afraid to chew the scenery a bit. The Baron and Baroness should pair together well and embody both the comically inept villain and the real threat to the Potts family.

Boris
Boris and Goran are the worst spies ever. These comical roles play off each another throughout the entire show and have some of the funniest dialogue should be good dancers and singers - they have tons of physical comedy.

Junkman
The Junkman is mean and a bit scary. Cast a good actor who can lean into this character’s threatening persona. This role is non-singing.
