EAST PEORIA, Ill. – The musical "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" opened last Friday at the Eastlight Theater.

This is the regional premiere of the musical, centered around the adventures of a flying car.

This musical is the third version of the story. It was first a novel by Ian Fleming of James Bond fame, then the movie starring Dick Van Dyke and finally the stage version which had a long run in London.

The director of the Eastlight production joined News 25’s Tom McIntyre.
