Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!
Get ready to experience the afterlife like never before as Beetlejuice invites you to step into a world where the supernatural meets the hilarious. Based on Tim Burton's iconic film, Beetlejuice brings his chaos and madness to stage where you'll witness larger-than-life sandworms, ghostly apparitions and jaw-dropping transformations. Whether you're a die-hard fan of the original film, or a newcomer to the Beetlejuice universe, prepare for a theatrical journey that's bound to leave you screaming... with laughter!
It was only a matter of time until the creepy camp cult hit film was turned into theatrical musical magic. The new production is based on the smash hit Tim Burton feature film released in 1988, which featured a smorgasbord of acting talents including a young Winona Ryder, Geena Davis, Alec Baldwin and Micheal Keaton. Universally praised for its anarchic off-the-wall humour, tuneful music, wicked lyrics and a carnivalesque set design, Beetlejuice provides a feast for the eyes, ears and inner angsty gothic teenager. Direction comes from Award-winning theatremaker Alex Timbers, with a score by Eddie Perfect, a book by Scott Brown and Anthony King, and choreography from Connor Gallagher.

Misunderstood by her father and stepmother, her isolated life is turned upside down when she moves into a new home haunted by a recently deceased couple called Barbara and Adam Maitland, and the rambunctious demon Beetlejuice. With the help of the Maitlands, Lydia sets out to foil the outrageous Beetlejuice's nefarious plans to come back to life and comes of age in the process.
