An all-star cast are to feature as beloved musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang lands in Belfast’s Grand Opera House this March.

Caractacus Potts will be played by Jason Manford (The Producers, Sweeney Todd), while Martin Kemp (EastEnders, The Krays) will play the Childcatcher.

Amy Griffiths (Everyman, Stephen Ward, The Pajama Game) will feature as Truly Scrumptious.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang will also feature Phill Jupitus (The Producers, Hairspray) as Lord Scrumptious/Baron Bomburst, Michelle Collins (EastEnders, Coronation Street) as Baroness Bomburst, and Andy Hockley (The Phantom Of The Opera) as Grandpa Potts.

One of the world’s favourite musicals, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang will have audiences of all ages flying high with its mixture of madness, intrigue and exuberance.

Can the loveable but wacky inventor, Potts, along with his two children and the gorgeous Truly Scrumptious outwit the bombastic Baron Bomburst, who has declared that all children be banished from his kingdom?

What happens when the children are caught and imprisoned with the other youngsters by the evil Childcatcher? Will it all end happily-ever-after?

Having broken all the box office records in the West End, this fun-filled production from the team that brought you The Fiddler on the Roof and The King and I promises laughs and magic galore - and Chitty herself.

The show will run from Wedhnesday, March 16 until Sunday, March 27 at 7:30pm (16th-26th), 2:30pm (17th, 19th, 24th-26th) 1.30pm (20th and 27th) and 5.30pm (20th).
