About this show

Edward Scissorhands is a magical new stage adaptation of the classic Tim Burton motion picture. Directed by Matthew Bourne with the musical score penned by award-winning composer Danny Elfman, this touching and witty Gothic fairytale tells the story of a boy created by an eccentric inventor who dies leaving him alone and unfinished. Left with only scissors for hands, Edward must find his place in a world where the well-meaning community around him struggles to see past his appearance to the innocence and gentleness within. The internationally-acclaimed Bourne recently choreographed the new hit musical, Mary Poppins. A five time Olivier award winner, he is also the creator of the world's longest-running ballet production and is the only British director to have won the Tony Award for Best Director and Best Choreographer of a Musical -- in 1999 for Swan Lake.
