Edward Scissorhands

This magical production of Edward Scissorhands is being presented at the Badminton Theatre in Athens after a phenomenally successful world tour that has included sell-out performances in New York, LA, San Francisco, Sydney, Melbourne and Paris. Don't miss this miraculous adaptation of the classic Tim Burton motion picture, from 27 January to 8 February.

Matthew Bourne's delightful adaptation of the classic Tim Burton motion picture is a treat for all the family. Featuring the beautiful and unmistakable theme music by Danny Elfman, this touching and witty gothic fairytale tells the story of a boy created by a lonely inventor who dies leaving him alone and unfinished. Left with only scissors for hands, Edward struggles to find his place in a strange new suburban world where the well-meaning community endeavours to see past his strange appearance to the innocence and gentleness within.

"Edward's magic shears make shear theatrical magic."
Time Magazine

"Scissorhands looks sharp on stage... as haunting as it is whimsical."
USA Today

"From the beginning, the Matthew Bourne - Tim Burton chemistry is fizzing... a cracking piece of theatre."
