STOPS OFF AT THE GRAND THEATRE NEXT YEAR
The world premiere tour of Disney’s exciting new stage musical, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, will be ‘bobbing along’ to Leeds Grand Theatre in 2021 for a five-week Christmas run from Wednesday 8 December to Sunday 9 January 2022.
With songs by the legendary Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, The Aristocats), including Portobello Road, The Age Of Not Believing, The Beautiful Briny, and a new book, music and lyrics by Neil Bartram and Brian Hill; Bedknobs and Broomsticks will be brought to life by award-winning theatre-makers Jamie Harrison (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and Candice Edmunds.
Based on the books The Magic Bedknob; or, How to Become a Witch in Ten Easy Lessons (1943) and Bonfires and Broomsticks (1947) by English children’s author Mary Norton, and subsequently the 1971 Academy Award-winning film starring Angela Lansbury and David Tomlinson, Bedknobs and Broomsticks tells the story of three orphaned children reluctantly evacuated from London to live with the mysterious Eglantine Price, a trainee witch!
The news of the tour follows the announcement that MAMMA MIA! will also make a welcome return to The Grand in 2023, following this year’s cancelled run due Covid-19. It will be at the Grand from 4 to 15 April 2021
