Press tickets were gifted to me courtesy of Grand Opera House York and ATG in exchange for this review. Yesterday I attended the press evening of Little Miss Sunshine – A Road Musical at the Grand Opera House York. I’ve always loved the theatre and enjoy going with my mum, but she was unavailable on this occasion so my blogging pal Lucy came along as my plus one this time.
For those who haven’t seen the film, Little Miss Sunshine is about the Hoover family, who are on the brink of collapse – they decide to travel 800 miles across the country in a camper van, to enter their young daughter, Olive, into the beauty contest of her dreams. Obviously, I don’t want to give much more away than that!
The shows advertising makes it seem family friendly, but I just wanted to warn that the show does contain adult content, swearing and covers topics which may be triggering for some (self harm, suicide, etc). Those aged 14-26 can see Little Miss Sunshine for £10 with a complimentary drink, when quoting SUNSHINE10 at checkout, which is such a good deal. I’d definitely recommend this offer for any families with older children who are considering seeing the show.
Due to the nature of the subject matter in the film, I was a little concerned about how some of the complex issues the characters face would come across on stage. However, as the show progressed, the entertainment value improved and I feel like the audience connected with the show more in the second half. Young Olive, played by the adorable Lily Mae Denman, is witty yet cute and is the star of the show, for sure.
Thank you so much to Grand Opera House York and ATG Tickets for gifting my Little Miss Sunshine press tickets, and to Pippa for organising the whole thing. It was also really awesome to catch up with some of the York Bloggers gang, who were also in attendance. You can buy tickets to see Little Miss Sunshine A Road Musical for yourself, over on the ATG website.
