The Theatre Royal, Plymouth is showing a brand new dance version of Edward Scissorhands directed and choreographed by the acclaimed Matthew Bourne, performed by the New Adventures troupe It is a dance, stage version of the Tim Burton film.
I took my 14 and 13 year olds along. We sat in the stalls and really enjoyed the whole performance. The direction, dancing, costumes, special effects were all fabulous and I would really recommend it to anyone from age 8.
Danny Elfman score and it was magnificent. Not played live, but through speakers and it sounded great.
My children really liked the costumes especially the 'topiary' ones.
I won't give anything away, but this performance might make sense for a Christmas / winter treat. It is going to be at 12 further venues after Plymouth. I highly recommend it.
