Matthew Bourne's dance adaptation of Tim Burton's film, Edward Scissorhands, plays Norwich Theatre Royal from Tuesday February 28 to Saturday March 4, with performances nightly at 7.30pm and matinees on Wednesday/Saturday at 2.30pm.

This enchanting and witty, gothic fairytale tells the story of a boy created by an eccentric inventor who dies leaving him alone and unfinished.

With only scissors for hands, Edward struggles with the simplest of tasks.

He is taken in by a caring all-American family and must find his feet in a strange new suburban world.

The music for Bourne's adaptation is based on Danny Elfman's score for the Burton film with new music/arrangements by Terry Davies. Sets and costumes are designed by Lez Brotherston, who keeps the blend of gothic beauty and the gaudy vision of US suburbia that makes the movie so visually spectacular.
