Unfortunate: The Untold Story of Ursula the Sea Witch is hitting the road for a UK tour in 2024 – here’s all you need to know.
The critically acclaimed musical parody is written by Robyn Grant and Daniel Foxx, with music by award-winning composer and musicals-writer Tim Gilvin.
Cruella told her side, and Maleficent’s had her moment… Now the legendary sea witch is ready to spill in this tell-all tale of sex, sorcery and suckers – a laugh-a-minute dive through
Ursula’s backstory filled with a filthy pop soundtrack, much loved characters as you’ve never seen them before and enough (eco-friendly) glitter to keep you sparkling all the way home.
Following its highly successful 2022 UK tour, the show opens in London this December before touring across the country in 2024.
