Laura Pitt-Pulford and cast of Little Miss Sunshine in rehearsals
We were invited into rehearsals for Little Miss Sunshine, opening at the Arcola Theatre this month before touring the country
The UK premiere of Little Miss Sunshine opens at the Arcola Theatre this month and we popped into rehearsals to find out more about the show.
Directed by Mehmet Ergen, the cast includes Laura Pitt-Pulford, Gary Wilmot, Gabriel Vick and Paul Keating.
Based on the Academy Award-winning 2006 film of the same name, the musical is created by James Lapine (Into the Woods) and William Finn (Falsettos). It follows the Hoover family, who travel from New Mexico to California to help their daughter Olive compete in a beauty contest.
Little Miss Sunshine has design by David Woodhead, lighting design by Richard Williamson, choreography by Anthony Whiteman and musical supervision by Mark Crossland.
It runs for seven weeks at the Arcola Theatre before embarking on a UK tour.
