Blackpool Grand Theatre’s next season is headlined by ‘laugh-out-loud’ productions. From February to June 2020 there’s top comedians and comedy plays packed with famous faces.

Educating Rita (March 16–21) stars Steven Tompkinson as Frank and introducing Jessica Johnson as Rita.

Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em (April 21–25) stars Joe Pasquale as the accident-prone Frank Spencer. Betty has exciting news for Frank, but he’s preoccupied by possible new-found fame as a magician.
