Liverpool’s Everyman & Playhouse has revealed its packed programme for Autumn Winter 2019 and its a busy, brilliant and exciting season. Expect acclaimed musicals, stage adaptations of revered literary classics and celebrated award-winning films, alongside high-quality family shows. This is quite possibly Liverpool’s best theatre season yet – grab the opportunity to see some of the very best theatre and performance happening in the North.

With an exciting programme of performance, the season offers an exceptional blend of work from both their inhouse company and Selladoor Productions, meaning Northern audiences get to see the highest quality homegrown talent alongside some of the best UK touring productions. Win-win.

The much-loved road film Little Miss Sunshine zooms into Liverpool Playhouse this September. Thirteen years after its cinematic release, the uplifting Academy-Award winner has been adapted for the stage. Bringing laughter and charm, this production will delight both fans of the film, and those who are discovering it for the first time.

Another screen-to-stage adaptation we’re super excited about is Amélie The Musical. Following huge public and critical acclaim, and a sell-out opening season, this vibrant and utterly beautiful story is a real treat on stage.

Fans of all things gothic really must check out Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Adapted by the award-winning Doctor Who writer Rona Munro, this production promises a refreshingly feminist take on the macabre literary masterpiece.

Little ones (and their grown-ups) will find much joy in Freckle Productions’ new adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler classic picture book, Tabby McTatA favourite read in all of our houses, Tabby makes for the purr-fect family theatre experience this autumn.

Of course, Liverpool’s theatre season would not be complete without a trip to the Everyman’s acclaimed Rock ‘n’ Roll Panto – this year the theatre’s inhouse company bring Sleeping Beauty- rock ‘n’ roll style. As much of a festive tradition as Christmas jumpers and a trip to Santa’s grotto, it goes without saying that early booking is highly recommended.
