Big Fish to open in Vista this week

Moonlight Stage Productions presents “Big Fish,” based on the celebrated Daniel Wallace novel and the acclaimed Tim Burton film. “Big Fish” overflows with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft.

This extraordinary new musical reminds us why we go to the theatre, to have an experience that’s richer, funnier, and bigger than life itself. Edward Bloom lives life to the fullest – and then some – as he spins incredible, larger-than life stories that thrills all who are around him.

Yet his son, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. “Big Fish” runs Sept. 9 to 26, 2015 under the stars at Moonlight Amphitheatre in Vista, Calif. All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Single tickets are priced $24 to $52.
