Other tour dates include:
Bourne danced his way into the mindset of theatregoers with his theatrical stagings of Cinderella, The Car Man and Swan Lake — which earned him an Olivier Award and two Tony Awards. Recent credits include choreography on the West End staging of Mary Poppins, My Fair Lady and Play Without Words. The stage Edward Scissorhands stars Bourne vets Richard Winsor and Sam Archer, who will alternate in the title role. Regular Bourne collaborators Scott Ambler and Etta Murfitt will serve as associate directors and co-star. Terry Davies, who worked with Bourne on Play Without Words and The Car Man, composes music adapted from Danny Elfman's haunting film score to the Caroline Thompson screenplay.
The design team will include Lez Brotherston (set and costumes), Howard Harrison (lighting) and Paul Groothuis (sound).
