From the acclaimed producers of Billionaire Boy and Awful Auntie comes a brand new tour of the award-winning production of this amazing story by David Walliams which has once again, been choreographed by Chantry Dance's co-Artistic Directors, Rae Piper and Paul Chantry.
The story joins young Ben on a Friday night and he knows that means only one thing – staying with Granny! There will be cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake and Ben knows one thing for sure – it’s going to be sooooooooo boring! But what Ben doesn’t know is that Granny has a secret – and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could ever imagine, as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!
Opening at the Alhambra in Bradford, Gangsta Granny then embarks on a UK tour running until June 2022. Having been previously nominated for an Olivier award, this fantastic, heartwarming show has done numerous sell out tours and had two West End runs.
