The enchanting tale of an extraordinary boy who brings a slice of magic to an ordinary town...
Matthew Bourne’s magical dance production of Edward Scissorhands has carved a place in the hearts of audiences world-wide since its premiere in 2005.
Based on the classic Tim Burton movie and featuring the hauntingly beautiful music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, Matthew Bourne and his New Adventures Company return to this witty, bittersweet story of an incomplete boy left alone in a strange new world.
In a castle high on a hill lives Edward; a boy created by an eccentric inventor. When his creator dies he is left alone and unfinished with only scissors for hands until a kindly townswoman invites him to live with her suburban family. Can Edward find his place in the well-meaning community which struggles to see past his curious appearance to the innocence and gentleness within?
Edward Scissorhands is playing at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London for a strictly limited run from 5 December 2023 until 20 January 2024. For more information and to book your tickets - from £15 - visit sadlerswells.com
