Groups have until February 2025 to see the show in the West End.

Opening at the Ambassadors Theatre on 10th October 2024, the show is described as an unusual musical with foot-stomping tunes that are sure to capture the hearts of London audiences.

While at Southwark Playhouse, the show scooped Best Musical Theatre Production at the 2024 Off West End Awards. The full cast and creative team will be announced soon.

Director Jethro Compton said: “This show has gone on the most incredible journey over the last seven years. What’s even more incredible, is the journey is only really just beginning.

“Button started life as a scrappy little show with a big heart, but the love it’s been shown by our audiences has allowed it to grow into something ready for the West End. We’re so unbelievably grateful for everyone’s support - and we can’t wait to continue this journey with you all.”

About The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

An electrifying journey through the timeless tale of a love that defies all odds, the production is said to be an enchantingly beautiful and truly unordinary musical that reminds us to make every second count.

With a fantastic soundtrack brought to life by an extraordinary actor-musician ensemble, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story is relocated to a fishing village on the north coast of Cornwall by writing team Jethro Compton and Darren Clark.

Under the light of a full moon, something most curious occurs… Benjamin Button is born old. Bound to the fate of growing younger each day, Benjamin wants nothing more than to live a little life. But will he ever find a place to belong? Only time and tide will tell.
