11TH JULY - 17TH SEPTEMBER 2016
Summer 2016, All Scene All Props contributed to the set build for the world premiere of a new musical, GROUNDHOG DAY.
Director Matthew Warchus, composer and lyricst Tim Minchin, choreographer Peter Darling and designer Rob Howell, four of the creators of the international sensation Matilda The Musical, have joined forces with writer Danny Rubin to collaborate on this new musical based on his 1993 hit film, starring Bill Murray.
GROUNDHOG DAY is the story of Phil Connors (Andy Karl), a cynical Pittsburgh TV weatherman who is sent to cover the annual Groundhog Day event in the isolated small town of Puxsutawney, Pennsylvania, when he finds himself caught in a time loop, forced to repeat the same day again and again... and again. As each day plays out exactly the same as before Phil becomes increasingly despondent, but is there a lesson to be learnt through his experiences, will he ever unlock the secret and break the cycle?
GROUNDHOG DAY will run at the The Old Vic theatre for a strictly limited 10-week season from Monday 11th July to Saturday 17th September 2016.
