Stick a pony in your pocket – the Trotters are coming to York!
Smash hit show Only Fools and Horses The Musical is heading out on tour for the first time next year, featuring Del Boy, Rodney, Grandad, Cassandra, Raquel, Boycie, Marlene, Trigger, Denzil, Mickey Pearce, Mike the Barman, the Driscoll Brothers and all the gang.
Direct from a record-breaking sold-out four-year run in London’s West End, the musical spectacular is based on John Sullivan’s legendary TV show.
Only Fools & Horses The Musical is at the Grand Opera House York from Monday 14 to Saturday 19 October 2024.
It features a script and original score written by John’s son, Jim Sullivan, and comedy icon Paul Whitehouse.
Paul Whitehouse said: “Following four amazing years in the West End, I’m thrilled we are announcing today that Only Fools and Horses The Musical is going on tour.
“All of the characters we know and love from the Only Fools television series will be live on stage, as we take Peckham on the road! Bonnet de douche!”
It’s 1989 and it’s all kicking off in Peckham. While the yuppie invasion of London is in full swing, love is in the air as Del Boy sets out on the rocky road to find his soul mate, Rodney and Cassandra prepare to say ‘I do’, and even Trigger is gearing up for a date (with a person!). Meanwhile, Boycie and Marlene give parenthood one final shot and Grandad takes stock of his life and decides the time has finally arrived to get his piles sorted.
With musical contributions from the iconic Chas & Dave, the beloved theme tune as you’ve never heard it before, and an array of brand-new songs full of character and cockney charm, you’re guaranteed to have a right ol’ knees-up!
Casting will be announced in early 2024.
So what are you waiting for? Get on the blower, and get a ticket for a truly cushty night out.
Tickets start from £13 and are available via the Grand Opera House website.
