Big Fish is a musical with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and based on a book by John August and a novel by Daniel Wallace and the 2003 film Big Fish written by August and directed by Tim Burton.

With a cast of 22 and a hard working crew of 12, Big Fish is a story about stories. Edward Bloom (Henry Thomas) is a charismatic salesman and devoted husband loved by all, except his adult son, Will (Alex Evans). Edward's gift for storytelling has alienated his son, who seeks the truth of his father's past. With Edward facing his own mortality and Will facing fatherhood, the time to reconcile and understand the truths and myths of their relationship is limited. 

The Millennium Theater is located on the campus of Maumee Valley Country Day School, 1715 S. Reynolds Rd, Toledo, Oh, 43614.
