Billionaire Boy at Palace Theatre, Manchester 9 — 12 March 2022 Tickets from £13.00 — Book now

Billionaire Boy the musical is coming to Palace Theatre in Manchester this March, in a show brought to you from the award-winning West End producers of Gangsta Granny and Horrible Histories. Based on the hilarious, best-selling book by David Walliams, this magnificent, musical performance guarantees lots of belly laughs, plot twists and turns, and rolls and rolls of toilet paper!

Joe Spud is twelve years old and the richest boy in the country, after his father becomes a billionaire overnight by inventing a special kind of toilet roll. Joe is ridiculously rich: he has his own sports car, his own bowling alley, his own cinema, his own butler who is also an orang-utan, two pet crocodiles and £100,000 pocket money, per WEEK! Sadly, Joe doesn’t have what he really wants more than anything, something money can’t buy – a real friend. Most of his peers at his private school only like him for his money, rather than for who he is as a person, so Joe hatches a plan. Without telling his father, who is wrapped up in his riches and his new girlfriend, Joe enrols in a new comprehensive school and decides to hide his huge fortune from his new classmates.

Join Joe on his rollercoaster journey as he tries to find the people and moments in life money can’t pay for, in this touching performance of Billionaire Boy at Manchester Palace Theatre. The cast will astound, the songs will get you humming along and the themes of friendship, happiness and family will warm your hearts.

Billionaire Boy is recommended for ages 7 and up, with plenty for grownups to enjoy too.
