Olivier Award-winning comedy favourites, Mischief, will be bringing their tour of Groan Ups to the Theatre Royal in Nottingham next week.

The comedy, which is about growing up, follows an unruly classroom of six year-olds as they journey through anarchic teenage life through to adulthood.

The performance will look to answer commonly asked questions such as ‘do we choose who we become?’ ‘Is the story of our lives already written?’ and ‘Do we ever really grow up?’

The touring cast features Daniel Abbott as Archie, Jamie Birkett as Chemise and Miss Murray, Matt Cavendish as Simon, Killian Macardle as Paul and Mr White, Yolanda Ovide as Moon, Dharmesh Patel as Spencer and Lauren Samuels as Katie.

Groan Ups premiered in the West End at the Vaudeville Theatre in September 2019.

It also featured on the Royal Variety Performance in the presence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Mischief’s other West End successes include The Play That Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, Magic Goes Wrong and Mischief Movie Night.

In addition to their stage work, Mischief’s hugely successful six-part TV Series, The Goes Wrong Show, aired in the UK on BBC1 and on Amazon Prime Video in the US, Canada and Australia.
