The main stage at Upper Darby Summer Stage is an outstanding musical theatre for adults and teens. Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest…and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him—most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart and humor, BIG FISH is an extraordinary musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre—for an experience that’s richer, funnier and bigger than life itself.
Featuring adult performers up to the age of 28, a full orchestra, professional lighting, set design, and costuming, the Philadelphia Inquirer recently raved, “Summer Stage manages to reach a level of professionalism and aesthetic excellence that is nothing short of miraculous.”
