Matthew Bourne’s magical dance production of Edward Scissorhands has carved a place in the hearts of thousands across the world since its premiere.  Presenting its first major revival, Bourne takes a fresh new look at this modern fairytale, which will be revitalised for a whole new generation of dance lovers and theatregoers.

***** "A SMASH HIT. Enchanting and exhilarating. A festive treat for all the family"

Based on the classic Tim Burton movie and featuring the beautiful music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, played live each night by the New Adventures Orchestra, this touching and witty love story tells the bittersweet tale of a boy left alone and unfinished in a strange new world.  It is a parable for our times about the ultimate outsider.

***** "The wonders just keep coming in Bourne’s magical new version of Edward Scissorhands"

After global success with his inspired interpretations of Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Nutcracker!, this new production is guaranteed to delight the whole family.

**** "This revival establishes Edward Scissorhands as vintage Bourne: as entrancingly strange and watchable as his version of Swan Lake"
**** "

At once modern and old fashioned, playful and melancholic and exactly right for this most sweetly stirring of family shows




“The perfect synthesis of dance and drama, comedy and pathos, exuberant theatricality and heart-warming entertainment”
