Big is a joyous, heart-warming musical about 12 year-old Josh Baskin who longs to be big.

As well as being directed and choreographed by Morgan Young, the production’s creative team includes musical supervision by Stuart Morley, set and costume design by Simon Higlett, lighting design by Tim Lutkin, video design by Ian Galloway, and sound design by Terry Jardine and Avgoustos Psillas.
