Bedknobs & Broomsticks

Disney’s Academy Award-winning movie Bedknobs and Broomsticks will make its world première as a stage musical next year.

Performances begin at Newcastle Theatre Royal on August 14, 2021, before a UK tour which includes Manchester Palace, October 19–24.

With original songs by the legendary Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), new music and lyrics by Neil Bartram and book by Brian Hill, it will be brought to life by theatre-makers Candice Edmunds and Jamie Harrison.

When the three orphaned Rawlins children are reluctantly evacuated from wartime London to live with the mysterious Eglantine Price, they have no idea what adventures lie ahead.

Casting will be announced at a later date.
