WHAT IS A 'BIG FISH"?
Based on the 2003 movie directed by Tim Burton and inspired by the iconic book by author Daniel Walters, BIG FISH, centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman, who lives life to its fullest...and then some! Edward's incredible, larger than life stories thrill everyone around him - most of all his devoted wife, Sandra. But their son Will, who is about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth between his father's tales. BIG FISH is overflowing with heart, humor and imaginative stagecraft. It is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theater - for an experience that will reach us as funnier and BIGGER than life itself. BIG FISH is based on the 2003 acclaimed movie starring Albert Finney and Jessica Lang as Edward and Sandra Bloom. The movie was inspired by the extremely popular novel of the same name. The book for the musical was written by John August with the music and lyrics composed by Andrew Lippa, YOU'RE A GOOD MAN CHARLIE BROWN, THE WILD PARTY and THE ADDAMS FAMILY to name a few of his other outstanding productions. So what is a BIG FISH? It is the limitless bounds of the imagination, the deepest depths of human emotion, the power of love and the joy in living life to its fullest...it is the BIGGEST and BEST life story. That is a BIG FISH. I hope, through my life, I have moments of BIG FISH...strive to be a BIG FISH...continue to look for my own BIG FISH. Join us and show us your BIG FISH.

Landmark Downtown Building To Recieve New Lease On Life
For the past six years the Tyrone Community Players have called the big, brick building at 1019 Logan Avenue their home. It has been used as a rehearsal hall for their theater productions, a history spanning 2.8 seasons, a storage space for their extensive costume collection, a meeting hall and home for the groups props, decor items, lighting fixtures and all the sound equipment required to "do" theater.

The Tyrone Community Players is looking for some items to help with renovating The Building
- Two free-standing clothing racks (don't have to be industrial strength)
- Two sets of wall-mounted strip lighting (like bathroom lighting) with 3-5 bulbs on each fixture (They don't have to match but it would be good if they did)
- Muscles for a few demolition projects (Call 684-ART2 to add your name and contact info to our list)
- Several full-length mirrors
Anyone wishing to donate any of these items on our Wish List can contact the ARTs Line at 814 684-ART2 (2782)
