Birmingham Hippodrome announces stellar new season

Birmingham Hippodrome has announced a raft of new productions for 2024 including a stellar line-up of West End and Broadway smash-hit musicals.

The Welsh National Opera will be bringing new two productions to Birmingham in Spring 2024; Mozart’s comic opera Così fan tutte on 10th May and Britten’s magnificently atmospheric Death in Venice on 11th May.

Winner of four Olivier Awards and the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical on Broadway, Come From Away (Tues 21 May – Sat 1 June 2024) comes to the Hippodrome on its first UK tour, opening on 21st May. The production shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives with open hearts. 

The sensational new production of one of the world’s most beloved musicals The Wizard of Oz plays from 11th to 16th June, featuring the iconic original score from the Oscar-winning MGM film with additional songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

Winner of Best New Musical (What’sOnStage Awards 2023), West End smash-hit Bonnie & Clyde will hit the Hippodrome stage in September 2024.

Hit musicals returning to the Hippodrome’s main stage next year include the Broadway and UK smash-hit Sister Act (13th – 18th May), the international phenomenon SIX the Musical after three sell out runs at the Hippodrome (18th – 22nd June) and the much loved musical, Hairspray (16th – 21st September).

Newly announced works in the Patrick Studio this Autumn include History in the Making: A Black History Special (17th and 18th October) which takes audiences on a trip down the black history timeline, presented through drama, spoken word, dance and music performances.

In April 2024 the stage adaptation of Rod Campbell’s timeless children’s classic book Dear Zoo returns to the stage (11th - 16th April). This production will delight both young and old as it unfolds with child-engaging puppets, music and lots of audience interaction.

Birmingham Hippodrome also recently launched their new pre-show dining concept TheCircle Lounge, working with chef Angelina Adamo. Audiences can enjoy The Circle Lounge for a beautiful Afternoon Tea alongside a matinee performance, or sharing platters, small plates and sweet treats with friends and family for an evening performance. Jon Gilchrist, Artistic Director and Chief Executive Officer at Birmingham Hippodrome said: 

“We’re so pleased to announce a fantastic line-up of productions coming to Birmingham in 2024 in what will be our 125th year.

“I’m also delighted that we have now opened The Circle Lounge, which is already providing our audiences with a whole new set of ‘goosebumps moments’ on tasting the wonderful food by Angelina Adamo.”

There will be a range of Audio Described, Captioned, BSL interpreted and relaxed performances throughout the season, to find out more head to the Hippodrome’s accessible performances web page.

Tickets for all new season shows will go on sale to Friends of Birmingham Hippodrome on Thursday 31 August at 11am and on general sale on Monday 4 September at 11am.
