Have a fish tale to tell this morning.

But this is not about the one that got away. This is about the one you can still catch this Friday and Saturday at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.

“Big Fish” is an extravagant stage production about a traveling salesman who comes home with amazing stories to tell. His son sets out to discern the truth behind the tales.

So, just what group of talented folks is taking on this Broadway-sized task? The Culture House!

For over 20 years, The Culture House, just off 119th Street in Olathe, has been bringing the world of dance, theater, music and art to the children of our area.

They have more than 700 aspiring artists taking classes this year.

And, each year, they choose one big production to perform on some of Kansas City’s finest stages.

There is no better place than the Kauffman Center.

According to Jeremiah Enna, the executive director of The Culture House, the long hours of work by the performers and their families is inspiring and makes this once-a-year experience special for the community and the artists.

The poster for “Big Fish” calls it, “A musical adventure beyond belief.”

The truth is that at The Culture House, it is an artistic, dancing, acting, musical adventure beyond belief year round.

Reel in a Big Fish this weekend. You’ll be very glad you did.
