Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the record-breaking West End production and the beloved film, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang JR. is one blockbuster that audiences will find "Truly Scrumptious."

Eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts, sets about restoring an old race car with the help of his children Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car is magic, and has the ability to float and take flight. When the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself, the family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher.

Character Description   Male/Female Role

Jeremy Potts Jeremy and Jemima Potts are energetic children who are always up for an adventure. They are friends and do everything together, and their greatest wish is to save Chitty Chitty Bang Bang from the junkyard. We will cast two performers who work well together and are good actors and singers. Ages 9-13   Male

Jemima Potts Jeremy and Jemima Potts are energetic children who are always up for an adventure. They are friends and do everything together, and their greatest wish is to save Chitty Chitty Bang Bang from the junkyard. We will cast two performers who work well together and are good actors and singers. Ages 9-13   Female

Chitty Chitty is the famous race car that beats the Vulgarians multiple times in the Grand Prix. We will be casting up to eight actors to create this magical car. While the car will have a distinct personality and a mind of its own, we want the performers we cast to operate the car to work as an excellent team. They should be singers who are very comfortable onstage. Ages 11-18   Any

Caractacus Potts Caractacus Potts is Jeremy and Jemima’s father. He is an eccentric inventor who cares deeply about his children. We will cast an experienced performer with a great voice who is very comfortable onstage. The role was played by Dick Van Dyke in the film version, and he’s a great example: a charming, charismatic leading man with great comic timing. Ages 14-18   Male

Mr. Coggins Mr. Coggins owns Coggins Garage and ultimately sells Chitty to Potts and the children. We will cast a good actor who can portray Mr. Coggins’s humor and kindness. This role is non-singing. Ages 12-18   Male

Junkman The Junkman is mean and a bit scary. We will cast a good actor who can lean into this character’s threatening persona. This role is non-singing. Ages 12-18   Male

Truly Scrumptious Truly Scrumptious is the smart, confident, adventurous daughter of Lord Scrumptious who quickly earns the Potts family’s trust. We will cast a fantastic singer, actor, and dancer who pairs well with the Potts family and can command the stage. Ages 14-18   Female

Grandpa Grandpa loves Jeremy, Jemima, and Potts with all his heart. Though his experience in the military drives many of his interactions, underneath all his bluster, the most important thing to Grandpa is his family. We will cast a great actor and a good singer who is unafraid to make bold choices onstage. Ages 14-18   Male

Miss Phillips Miss Phillips is the no-nonsense assistant to Lord Scrumptious. This is a great feature for someone who can create a strong character but might not be quite ready for a larger role. Miss Phillips does not have a singing solo, so we ill cast a good actor with good stage presence. Ages 11-18   Female

Lord Scrumptious Lord Scrumptious is the all-powerful owner of the candy factory. We will cast a strong, confident performer who is comfortable commanding the stage and pairs well with Truly. This role is non- singing. Ages 14-18   Male

Baron The Baron and Baroness are larger-than-life villains. We will cast excellent performers who can act, sing, dance, and who aren’t afraid to chew the scenery a bit. The Baron and Baroness should pair together well and embody both the comically inept villain and the real threat to the Potts family. Ages 13-18   Male

Baroness The Baron and Baroness are larger-than-life villains. We will cast excellent performers who can act, sing, dance, and who aren’t afraid to chew the scenery a bit. The Baron and Baroness should pair together well and embody both the comically inept villain and the real threat to the Potts family. Ages 13-18   Female

Boris Boris and Goran are the worst spies ever. These comical roles play off each another throughout the entire show and have some of the funniest dialogue, so we will cast two hilarious performers who can really land a joke. Boris and Goran do not sing but should be good movers since they have some physical comedy. Ages 11-18   Male

Goran Boris and Goran are the worst spies ever. These comical roles play off each another throughout the entire show and have some of the funniest dialogue, so we will cast two hilarious performers who can really land a joke. Boris and Goran do not sing but should be good movers since they have some physical comedy. Ages 11-18   Male

Morris Dancer The Morris Dancers perform during “Me Ol’ Bamboo.” We will cast good singers and GREAT dancers who can carry the number. Ages 11-18   Any

Fair Announcer The Fair Announcer kicks off the Fun Fair by introducing the Morris Dancers. This is a great role for a newer performer who might not be ready to take on a large role. We need this actor to have a big voice! Ages 11-18   Any

Violet Violet and Sid are great featured roles, and they are involved in a bit of stage magic during “Me Ol’ Bamboo.” We need good actors and responsible performers who can perform the staging the same way for each performance. Ages 13-18   Female

Sid Violet and Sid are great featured roles, and they are involved in a bit of stage magic during “Me Ol’ Bamboo.” We need good actors and responsible performers who can perform the staging the same way for each performance. Ages 13-18   Male

Turkey Farmer The Turkey Farmer has a brief scene after “Me Ol’ Bamboo.” This is a good place for an actor who can make a big impression in a short amount of time. This role is non-singing. Ages 10-18   Male

Soldiers Soldier 1 and Soldier 2 are the Baron and Baroness’s lackeys. These are great non- singing, featured roles for newer performers. Ages 9-18   Any

Toy Maker The Toymaker has been secretly working to save children right under the Baron and Baroness’s noses. The Toymaker is compassionate, clever, and never gives up trying to help people. We will cast a great actor and a good singer to portray the Toymaker’s kindness. The Toymaker should be a total contrast to the Child Catcher. Ages 14-18   Male

Toby Toby, Marta, and Greta are Hidden Children who help Potts plan Jeremy and Jemima’s rescue. They should be fine actors and good singers who shine onstage. Ages 8-14   Male

Marta Toby, Marta, and Greta are Hidden Children who help Potts plan Jeremy and Jemima’s rescue. They should be fine actors and good singers who shine onstage. Ages 8-14   Female

Greta Toby, Marta, and Greta are Hidden Children who help Potts plan Jeremy and Jemima’s rescue. They should be fine actors and good singers who shine onstage. Ages 8-14   Female

Chefs Chef 1 & Chef 2 are ensemble roles featured in "Toot Sweets". Ages 11-18   Any

Child Catcher The Child Catcher is a villain with none of the Baron and Baroness’s humor. We will cast a performer who isn’t afraid to be terrifying! The Child Catcher doesn’t sing but should be a great actor. Ages 14-18   Any

Ensemble The ensemble for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang JR. is made up of a myriad of vibrant characters including Chef 1, Chef 2, Chef 3, additional Chefs, Workers, Townspeople, Dogs, Soldiers, Star Chorus, Fairgoers, Seagulls, Vulgarians, and Hidden Children. All of these characters help fill out the world of the show, so the bolder the actors’ choices the better. Ages 7-18   Any
