Musical based on the famous 1988 film starring Tom Hanks is coming to New Mills Art Theatre. Josh Baskin, a 12-year-old boy, makes a wish into a mysterious ‘Zoltar Speaks’ machine at a carnival. Josh wakes up next morning to find he is no longer a boy but a man! Then, with help from his best friend Billy, he tries to cope with his newfound adulthood, whilst searching for the machine so that he can wish himself back – and more.
