NEWS: New musical of hit movie Little Miss Sunshine at King’s Theatre, Glasgow next summer

Little Miss Sunshine, the quirky off-Broadway hit musical is coming to Glasgow for the first time next year.

Based on the Academy Award-winning film by Michael Arndt, the stage adaptation of Little Miss Sunshine will run at the King’s Theatre from Tuesday 2 until Saturday 6 July 2019 as part of a UK tour.

Tickets are on sale to ATG Theatre Card holders now and general sale will begin on Friday 26 October at 10am.

The story tells of the Hoover family who have more than a few troubles. Young Olive has her heart set on winning the Little Miss Sunshine beauty contest and when an invitation to compete comes out of the blue, the Hoovers must pile into their rickety, yellow VW camper van. Can it survive the 800-mile trip from New Mexico to California – and more importantly, can they? This inventive and uplifting musical celebrates the quirks of every family, the potholes in every road, and the power of overcoming our differences.


Little Miss Sunshine is the off-beat musical comedy created by the Tony Award-winning team of James Lapine (who collaborated with Stephen Sondheim on Into the Woods and Sunday in the Park with George) and William Finn (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Falsettos). This new production will be directed by the Arcola’s Theatre’s Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen with design by David Woodhead, lighting design by Richard Williamson, choreography by Anthony Whiteman and musical supervision by Mark Crossland.

Casting to be announced.
