The Swashbuckling Pirate Musical).

The production also features co-direction by Simon Harvey, comedy staging by Jos Houben, design by Ana Inés Jabares-Pita, lighting by Colin Grenfell, musical supervision by Michael John McCarthy, sound by McCarthy and Luke Swaffield for Autograph and choreography by Emily Jane Boyle.

The tour launches at The Lowry in Salford (19 to 21 January), before heading to Newcastle, Bath, Coventry, Richmond, Chichester, Cheltenham, Inverness, Cardiff, Nottingham, Eastbourne, Chester, Birmingham, Leeds, Blackpool, Bristol, Truro, Malvern, Exeter and concluding in Norwich (19 to 24 June 2023).
