Edward Scissorhands Ballet is heading to Liverpool in January 2015

THE spectacular modern fairy tale directed by the UK's most popular and successful choreographer, Matthew Bourne, returns to the UK and will be run at the Liverpool Empire over 27 January to 31 January 2015.

Since 2005, New Adventures' magical production of EDWARD SCISSORHANDS has carved a place in the hearts of thousands with its performances being sold out in Europe, America, Asia and Australia.

Based on the classic Tim Burton film and featuring the beautiful and unforgettable music by Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, this touching love story tells the bittersweet story of a boy created by a lonely inventor who dies leaving him alone and unfinished. Left with only scissors for hands, Edward must find his place in a strange suburban world where the well meaning community struggle to see past his appearance to the innocence and gentleness within. The title role will be shared between a popular New Adventures star, DOMINIC NORTH, and a rising star, LIAM MOWER.

Matthew Bourne is the creator of the world's longest running ballet production (Swan Lake), a five-time Olivier Award winner, and the only British director to have won Tony Awards for both Best Choreographer and Best Director of a Musical. In collaboration with his world class team, Matthew Bourne managed to produce some of the most successful dance productions ever staged. Since its formation in 2002, New Adventures has created an enviable repertory of acclaimed new works (Play Without Words, Edward Scissorhands, Dorian Gray, Lord Of The Flies and Sleeping Beauty) as well as new productions of popular favourites from Matthew Bourne's former company, Adventures In Motion Pictures (1987 to 2002) - Nutcracker!, Swan Lake, Highland Fling, The Car Man, Cinderella and the mixed programme Early Adventures. Do not miss your chance to see the outstanding production of EDWARD SCISSORHANDS!
