Iconic musical is ready for take-off


Dursley-based theatre group DODS is celebrating its 70th anniversary with a production of the award-winning musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The famous flying car lands at the Lister Hall, Chantry Centre in Dursley from 1st – 6th May.

Originally written by Ian Fleming as a story for his son Caspar, it became the much-loved 1968 film starring Dick van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes. A sensational score includes such unforgettable songs as Truly Scrumptious, Hushabye Mountain, Toot Sweets and, of course, its Oscar-nominated title song Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

The musical broke box office records in the West End and ran for three years, winning multiple awards before flying off to Broadway.

This new production promises laughter, spectacle and magic, including the phantasmagorical fine four-fendered Chitty car herself. With a cast of more than 50, spectacular sets, classic costumes and stunning special effects, this is a not-to-be-missed musical. Tickets are on sale now – visit www.the-dods.com or phone the ticket hotline: 0300 102 3637.
