Selladoor Productions presents Little Miss Sunshine, the off-Broadway hit musical which comes to The Lowry (May 27 to June 1) as part of a UK tour following a European première in London.

Based on the Academy Award-winning film, it is created by Tony-winning team James Lapine (who collaborated with Stephen Sondheim on Into the Woods and Sunday in the Park with George) and William Finn (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Falsettos).

The Hoover family has more than a few troubles, but young Olive has her heart set on winning the Little Miss Sunshine beauty contest. When an invitation to compete comes out of the blue, the Hoovers must pile into their rickety, yellow VW camper van.
