Mischief Theatre will take over the Vaudeville Theatre from September.
Mischief Theatre will present three new pieces of work during its year long residency in the Vaudeville theatre, opening with Groan Ups in September.
Groan Ups will see the original cast of the Mischief Theatre company reuniting for this new comedy show, with tickets going on sale to the public from the 28th January. Further details of the other productions to be included during the year long residency have yet to be announced.
From the parents of The Play That Goes Wrong comes a brand-new comedy all about growing up. Are we the same people at 30 as we were at 13? Does school life determine our future? Do we ever grow out of our school crush? Playing an unruly classroom of kids and anarchic high school teenagers, through to the aches and pains of adulthood, the original Mischief company are back in the West End with their first new play since 2016.
The cast for the production is set to include Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Charlie Russell, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields, Nancy Zamit alongside Bryony Corrigan. Groan Ups was written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, with the production being directed by Kirsty Patrick Ward.
Talking about the news Henry Lewis, Artistic Director of Mischief Theatre, and Jonathan Sayer, Company Director of Mischief Theatre, said: ” We couldn’t be more delighted to have been invited by Nica Burns and Nimax Theatres to take over the Vaudeville Theatre for an entire year. They took a leap of faith with us back in 2014 by putting The Play That Goes Wrong on in the West End so we just hope we can do them proud! Mischief Theatre is incredibly grateful for this amazing opportunity and now we can make sure the laughs continue for audiences.”
Groan Ups will play at the Vaudeville Theatre from the 20th September.
