The first ever stage version of the comedy is coming to the Hippodrome from November 19-24.

Derren Litten has written a new set of Alicante escapades for the much-loved cast members including Jake Canuso (Mateo), Janine Duvitski (Jacqueline), Adam Gillen (Liam), Sherrie Hewson (Joyce Temple-Savage), Shelley Longworth (Sam), and Tony Maudsley (Kenneth) as they swap sangria for the stage after a quick spruce at the Blow ‘n’ Go.

The show has been produced for the stage by Michael Harrison and David Ian.

Talking about it’s stage debut, writer Derren Litten said: “I’ve loved 10 years of writing my TV show Benidorm, but despite a successful writing career I’m first and foremost a performer so have always been secretly frustrated I couldn’t hear the audience’s laughter.

“This national tour of Benidorm – Live will not only make a long-lasting dream come true, it will also mean I no longer have to stand in strangers’ gardens listening at their windows at 9 o’clock on cold winter evenings.”

The comedy celebrates a decade of hilarity, having followed the ensemble cast of holidaymakers and staff for nine series since its first broadcast in 2007.

Critically-acclaimed, Benidorm has received two National Television Awards a TV Quick Award and nominations at the British Comedy Awards and BAFTAs.

Evening shows will begin at 7.30pm and the matinee on November 24 starts at 2.30pm.

Tickets, priced £16, are available at www.atgtickets.com/bristol or on 08448 713012.
