Global warming is likely to bring more snow to Michigan, but only for the next few decades. That’s because the Great Lakes are spending fewer days under ice cover.
Based on the 1968 film version of Ian Fleming's children's book, and featuring a score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), the musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang follows the adventures of inventor Caractacus Potts, his sweetheart, Truly Scrumptious, his father, and his two children, Jeremy and Jemima, in a flying car, as they outwit a child-hating Baron and Baroness and their Child-Catcher henchman. The Kalamazoo Civic's production features Dan Coyne (Grandpa Potts) and Donna Willoughby (Baroness Bomburst) in a cast directed by Tony Humrichouser. Coyne, Willoughby, and Humrichouser joined Cara Lieurance to preview the production and its central feat of engineering: a full-size, remote-control car that can fly. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang runs from Nov 23 - Dec 9 at the Kalamazoo Civic mainstage.
