Why see Beetlejuice?

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice! 

Get ready to experience the afterlife like never before as Beetlejuice invites you to step into a world where the supernatural meets the hilarious. Based on Tim Burton's iconic film, Beetlejuice brings his chaos and madness to stage where you'll witness larger-than-life sandworms, ghostly apparitions and jaw-dropping transformations. Whether you're a die-hard fan of the original film, or a newcomer to the Beetlejuice universe, prepare for a theatrical journey that's bound to leave you screaming... with laughter!

It was only a matter of time until the creepy camp cult hit film was turned into theatrical musical magic. The new production is based on the smash hit Tim Burton feature film released in 1988, which featured a smorgasbord of acting talents including a young Winona Ryder, Geena Davis, Alec Baldwin and Micheal Keaton. Universally praised for its anarchic off-the-wall humour, tuneful music, wicked lyrics and a carnivalesque set design, Beetlejuice provides a feast for the eyes, ears and inner angsty gothic teenager. Direction comes from Award-winning theatremaker Alex Timbers, with a score by Eddie Perfect, a book by Scott Brown and Anthony King, and choreography from Connor Gallagher. 

What is Beetlejuice About? 

Lydia Deetz is not your average All American teenage girl. Marching firmly to the beat of her own drum, the strange and unusual heroine enjoys writing poetry, photography and anything to do with the paranormal and supernatural. Misunderstood by her father and stepmother, her isolated life is turned upside down when she moves into a new home haunted by a recently deceased couple called Barbara and Adam Maitland, and the rambunctious demon Beetlejuice. With the help of the Maitlands, Lydia sets out to foil the outrageous Beetlejuice's nefarious plans to come back to life and comes of age in the process.

AMAZING

I took my daughter who is just starting theatre Lydia is her dream roll. I'm not a huge musical fan but it was by far the BEST show I have seen. Beetlejuice was spot on and Lydia the pipes on this girl just amazing. It was non stop entertainment. Even if you do not enjoy musicals this is one you would love. Not for children at all adult humor but even dad's will love it. The entire cast is amazing. Very well done. Even though it changes from the movie at some points very well written hilarious engaging just all around great!!! ... Read more

Best show I have ever seen in Philadelphia

I just got home and rushed to find a place to write this review. I have seen many musicals in Philadelphia over the years and Beetlejuice blew me away. Usually shows in Philadelphia or discount knock offs of what you will see in NYC, but this production had the acting the voices and sets that were comparable to the best. Isabella (Lydia) has Jenna Ortega qualities and is a future star. Justin (Beetlejuice) is Broadway quality. If you have the time and tickets are available run, don’t walk to see this before it leaves. ... Read more
