Bedknobs and Broomsticks at Bristol Hippodrome This month

The brand new stage version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks, based on the much-loved movie, comes to the Bristol Hippodrome theatre this month

Disney’s magical fantasty Bedknobs and Broomsticks, has transfered from screen to stage with a brand new musical, currently on a UK and Ireland tour.

Featuring original songs by the Sherman Brothers – think Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang – the musical has been brought to life with additional new music and lyrics by Neil Bartram, a book by Brian Hill and award-winning theatre-makers Candice Edmunds and Jamie Harrison.

Three orphaned children make the reluctant move from wartime London, evacuated to live with the mysterious Eglantine Price. But, they have no idea that this is only the very start of their amazing adventures.

Dianne Pilkington will be taking to the stage as Miss Eglantine Price with Charles Brunton as Emelius Browne.

The rest of the cast includes Mark Anderson, Jessica Aubrey, Georgie Buckland, Kayla Carter, Jonathan Cobb, Jacqui Dubois, Matthew Elliot-Campbell, Sam Lupton, Rob Madge, Vinnie Monachello, Nathaniel Morrison, Conor O’Hara, Sadie-Jean Shirley, Robin Simoes Da Silva, Emma Thornett and Susannah Van Den Berg. The Rawlins children will be played by Dexter Barry, Izabella Bucknell, Haydn Court, Poppy Houghton, Evie Lightman and Aidan Oti.

Bedknobs and Broomsticks will be at the Bristol Hippodrome from Wednesday 26 January to Saturday 29 January 2022.
