Trio of shows announced for Wolverhampton Grand as theatres set to reopen

New tours of ‘Bedknobs and Broomsticks’, ‘Bring It On’ and ‘Footloose’ arrive in the city next year.

The exciting news comes as the government are set to announce that theatres can reopen with an increased seating capacity from the end of May.

When the three orphaned Rawlins children are reluctantly evacuated from wartime London to live with the mysterious Eglantine Price, they have no idea what adventures lie ahead. Upon discovering Eglantine to be a trainee witch, they join forces to search for a secret spell that will defeat the enemy once and for all.

Armed with an enchanted bedknob, a bewitched broomstick and a magical flying bed, they encounter surprising new friendships on their journey from Portobello Road to the depths of the beautiful briny sea. Producer Michael Harrison said:

“As theatres across the UK and Ireland prepare to reopen, I’m thrilled that so many want to host our exciting new production of Bedknobs and Broomsticks; so we are extending this world premiere tour.

“Bedknobs and Broomsticks will be one of the biggest shows on the road this year with a cast and crew of over 70 people to bring this classic story to magical life on stage.”

Bring It On is the hit Broadway musical starring Amber Davies and Louis Smith. It back-flips into the UK, landing in Wolverhampton from Wednesday 26 January – Saturday 29 January 2022.

Cheer-royalty and newly crowned Squad Captain, Campbell, should be embarking on her most cheertastic senior year at Truman High School. But when she’s forced to move to the neighbouring hard-knock Jackson High, Campbell fears her life is over. But an unlikely friendship catapults Campbell back into contention with a powerhouse squad and the fire to achieve the impossible.

Finally, Footloose is back and better than ever from Monday 4 to Saturday 9 July 2022, following two critically acclaimed tours and a West End run.

Based on the 1980s screen sensation which took the world by storm, the story follows City boy, Ren who thinks life is bad enough when he’s forced to move to a rural backwater in America. But his world comes to a standstill when he arrives at Bomont to find dancing and rock music are banned.

Taking matters into his own hands, soon Ren has all hell breaking loose and the whole town on its feet.

With cutting edge modern choreography, you’ll enjoy classic 80s hits including Holding Out for a Hero, Let’s Hear It For The Boy and of course the unforgettable title track.

All new shows will be sale to Friends of the Grand and members from 8am on Wednesday 12 May, with public booking opening at 8am on Friday 14 May at
