Little Miss Sunshine, 21 March-11 May

We could all use a little bit of sunshine, so the European premiere that's about to arrive at the Arcola should come as a welcome release.

Little Miss Sunshine is a new musical comedy from Tony Awardwinners James Lapine and William Finn.

Fresh from a critically acclaimed run Off-Broadway, it's based on the Oscar-winning film of the same name.

Don't know the film? Here's the gist: bespectacled and indomitable Olive Hoover and her eccentric family pile into their clapped-out VW campervan and travel 800 miles across America so that little Olive can enter a junior beauty pageant.

Do know the film? Don't worry, there's plenty that's new about this musical adaptation, directed by the Arcola's own Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen, with a cast including Olivier nominees Paul Keating and Laura Pitt-Pulford.

To borrow a line from Olive: "Yep, still fabulous."

Running from 21 March - 12 May at Arcola Theatre, Dalston. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
