David Walliams' Billionaire Boy is the latest live theatre production to be heading out for a Covid-safe UK tour - with FOUR performances in the West Midlands this Easter!
Billionaire Boy tells the story of 12-year-old Joe Spud. The richest boy in the country, he has £100k pocket money a week, owns his own top range sports car, and has crocodiles as pets. You could say he has everything ... that is except a friend!
So looking for a decent pal, he decides to quit his posh private school for the local comprehensive, where he discovers there are some things money just can't buy.
Billionaire Boy is the latest production from Birmingham Stage Company, who previously toured Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain and Horrible Christmas - both Covid-safe car park family productions.
Organisers describe the production as "the ultimate drive-in family theatre experience", with live performances scheduled to tie in with the Easter holidays.
Discussing the show, David said: "I am delighted that families will have the opportunity to see some live theatre again. The show is hilarious and I hope spreads some happiness in these difficult times."
The Car Park Party performances kick-off on Friday 2 April 2021 at Birmingham NEC and visits Stoneleigh Park, in nearby Warwickshire, on Friday 9 April 2021. Performances are at 2pm and 5pm each day.
Since the publication of his debut novel The Boy In The Dress in 2008, Walliams has become one of today's most popular writers for children. With sales of over 40 million copies, his work has also been translated into 53 languages, and turned into hit stage plays and popular films.
