Devised, directed and choreographed by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Matthew Bourne this delightful dance adaptation of the classic Tim Burton motion picture EDWARD SCISSORHANDS returns for a six week season this Christmas.
The iconic title role will be played by popular New Adventures stars, Dominic North (Sleeping Beauty) and Liam Mower (Billy Elliot).
Featuring the beautiful and unmistakable music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies this touching love story tells the bittersweet modern fairytale of a boy created with only scissors for hands, left alone to fend for himself in a strange new suburban world.
After global success with his inspired interpretations of Lord of the Flies, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Nutcracker!, Bourne revisits EDWARD SCISSORHANDS with his team of regular collaborators. Featuring set and costume designs by Olivier Award-winner Lez Brotherston, lighting by Howard Harrison and sound design by Paul Groothuis.
