Huntington University’s production of the musical ‘Big Fish’ will be held at the Merillat Centre for the Arts this week and weekend.

The show, which will take place at 7:30 p.m. this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as well as a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, is based on Daniel Wallace’s 1998 novel ‘Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions.’ The book was adapted into the 2003 film ‘Big Fish’ featuring Hollywood stars like Ewan McGregor, Billy Crudup and Jessica Lange before becoming a Broadway musical in 2013.
