Who’s ready for a cheeky world premiere? Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks has been adapted for the stage and the brand new musical is coming to Leeds Grand Theatre for a five-week Christmas run this year.
The musical includes songs by the legendary Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, The Aristocats), including Portobello Road, The Age Of Not Believing, The Beautiful Briny, and a new book, music and lyrics by Neil Bartram and Brian Hill.
If that wasn’t enough to convince you, the show is being brought to life by Candice Edmunds and Jamie Harrison, who brought us all Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!
You’ll either know Bedknobs and Broomsticks from the Mary Norton books or the award-winning film starring Angela Lansbury and David Tomlinson. The story follows three recently evacuated orphaned children who are sent to live with a trainee witch!
Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Wednesday 8 December 2021 to Sunday 9 January 2022.
