What is the meaning of a Big Fish? That’s the question the Lakewood High School Theatre Company asks this spring when they tackle the tale of one man and the story of his life.
The story follows the life of Edward Bloom, a man of big ideas and bigger ambitions. His son Will desperately searches for the truth to his father’s life before it’s too late. Will’s discovers what he's been looking for when he realizes life is a story, and the story is Edward’s life.
The annual musical is a collaboration of the entire performing arts department at Lakewood. “The production is always a highlight of our year,” said Bryce Melaragno, the pit conductor for the musical. “It’s this wonderful display of what can happen in a comprehensive high school when smart, hard working students are given opportunity to immerse themselves in art.”
“It’s a story with a universal meaning,” explains student director Kelsey Kasel. “No one wants to be forgotten, and this story shows the lengths one man will go to to ensure his legacy with his family, because his love for life is unconstrained and he wants to share that with those he loves.”
The Lakewood High School Theatre Company is nationally recognized by the Educational Theatre Association as one of three Top Theatre Schools in the nation for 2018, was the recipient of the 2017 Outstanding Arts School Award, and has been nominated for over 35 Denver Center Bobby G Awards, winning 10.
