A new stage musical based on Little Miss Sunshine will have its European premiere in London next year.
The show, which has already run off-Broadway in the US, will run at London’s Arcila Theatre from March 21st, followed by a UK tour starting at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich beginning on May 20.
Little Miss Sunshine follows the Hoover family, who 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. Can it survive the 800-mile trip from New Mexico to California—and more important, can they?
The musical made its off-Broadway debut in 2013 production.
There are no details regarding cast yet.
