The road to happiness is a bumpy ride.

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 Mark Moraghan (Coronation Street, Holby City, 9 to 5), Lucy
O’Byrne
(Evita, Les Misérables, The Sound of Music), two-time Olivier-award nominee Paul Keating
(Little Shop of Horrors, The Full Monty), Gabriel Vick (Avenue Q, Les Misérables, Eastenders), and Ian
Carlyle (The Lion King, We Will Rock You). 

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? 

This uplifting, modern classic celebrates the quirks of every family, the potholes in every road, and
the power of overcoming our differences. 

Duration: 2 hours 10mins with interval

“Based on my favourite road movie ever, and directed with panache by award-winning Mehmet Ergen, this will be a sunny summer delight!”
