strong ensemble dedicated to dynamic character choices that enhance

the world they are building.”

“Woodland Opera House’s Chitty Chitty Bang Bang JR. was completely innovative. The cast

created sets, costumes, and even a flying car with without any physical

encourages young performers to be brave and focused.”
