LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE TOUR

little mis sunshine tourThe musical adaptation of Little Miss Sunshine comedy drama had its UK premiere in London's Arcola Theatre in March 2019 and is now embarking on a UK tour. The musical had its world premiere in San Diego in 2011 before performing Off-Broadway at the Second Stage Theatre in October 2013.

The musical is created by James Lapine (Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George) and William Finn (Falsettos, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and based on the Academy Award-winning 2006 film , following the Hoover family who have more than a few troubles, plus young daughter Olive who has her heart set on winning the Little Miss Sunshine beauty contest when an invitation to compete comes out of the blue. Determined to get her into the finals of the beauty pageant they  travel from New Mexico to California in their rickety yellow VW camper van. Can it survive the 800-mile trip – 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.

The tour will star Lucy O'Byrne as Sheryl, the matriarch of the eccentric Hoover family (for the tour), Mark Moraghan as Grandpa (the role that won Alan Arkin an Academy award) (for the tour), Gabriel Vick as Sheryl's husband Richard, Paul Keating as Sheryl's brother Frank and Sev Keoshgerian as Sheryl's son Dwayne.

The role of Olive will be shared by Sophie Hartley Booth, Evie Gibson and Lily Mae Denman. Ian Carlyle will play Larry/Buddy, Imelda Warren-Green will play Linda/Miss California and Matthew McDonald will play Joshua Rose/Kirby.

The new production will be directed by Mehmet Ergen, artistic director at the Arcola, with design by David Woodhead, lighting design by Richard Williamson, choreography by Anthony Whiteman and musical supervision by Mark Crossland.

The musical is a co-production between Selladoor Worldwide and London's Arcola Theatre  where will run for seven weeks at from 21st March, and then kick off  a UK  tour at Ipswich  New Wolsey  on 16th  May with further dates to be announced.
