Tue 20 - Sat 24 Aug, Main Stage
Based on the Oscar-winning film, Little Miss Sunshine is a new musical comedy from Tony Award-winners James Lapine (Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George) and William Finn (Falsettos, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee).
This European Premiere stars Paul Keating (Tick Tick Boom, Little Shop of Horrors, The Full Monty), and Gabriel Vick (Sunny Afternoon, Les Misérables stage & film, EastEnders).
The Hoover family has more than a few troubles, but young Olive has her heart set on winning the Little Miss Sunshine beauty contest. When an invitation to compete comes out of the blue, the Hoovers must pile in to their rickety yellow camper van. Can it survive the 800-mile trip from New Mexico to California – and more importantly, can they?
“Based on my favourite road movie ever, and directed with panache by award-winning Mehmet Ergen, this will be a sunny summer delight!”
