Talking about the production’s return to the stage, producer Warwick Davis said: “At the beginning of the year, Eugenius! had a buzz-filled, triumphant 6-week premiere at The Other Palace. Since then we’ve been busy tweaking, tickling, tightening and super-charging the show. So if you missed Eugenius! last time this is your chance to finally see what the buzz is all about. And if you were one of the wonderful, crazy fans who saw it many times, we look forward to welcoming you back again – especially as we have added a new song to the 80s-inspired soundtrack that had audiences on their feet at every performance punching the air and shouting in unison, ‘Go Eugenius!’.”
Eugenius! will play at The Other Palace from the 1st September until the 7th October. To book tickets click here or visit: Ticketmaster.co.uk, See Tickets, Encore Tickets, From the Box Office, Love Theatre.com or Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk.
