STOMP at Birmingham Hippodrome



• CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF STOMP

• GREAT HALF TERM TREAT

• FEEL GOOD SHOW RETURNS TO BIRMINGHAM HIPPODROME

• NEW ROUTINES, NEW MUSIC

After touring the globe almost continuously for 20 years, setting feet stamping, fingers drumming and adrenalin rushing for over 15 million people in 48 countries across 5 continents, STOMP returns to Birmingham Hippodrome from Tuesday 14 – Saturday 18 February 2012.

Since its premiere at the Edinburgh Festival in 1991, STOMP has become a global phenomenon, showcasing a universal language of rhythm, theatre, comedy and dance that has resonated with audiences throughout the world. Eight performers use everything from Zippo lighters and plastic bags to bin lids and even the kitchen sink to hammer out an explosively feel-good rhythm.

With brand new routines, new choreography and new music STOMP is now fresher, faster and funnier than ever!

From a single drum hanging around Luke Cresswell’s neck back in 1991, STOMP has taken on a life of its own. Creators and co-directors Cresswell and Steve McNicholas developed a pulsating, witty, utterly irresistible theatrical event that has become a worldwide phenomenon.

Over the last 20 years, STOMP has garnered truly diverse recognition; from an Olivier Award and the headline-grabbing performance at the 1996 Oscars to the City of New York celebrating its 10th birthday at the Orpheum Theatre by renaming 2nd Avenue at 8th Street ‘Stomp Avenue’!

STOMP returns to Birmingham Hippodrome during Half Term providing the whole family with the perfect theatre outing during the holidays.

STOMP runs at Birmingham Hippodrome Tuesday 14 – Saturday 18 February 2012. Performance times: Tue – Sat Eves 7.30pm, Wed & Fri Mat 2pm, Sat Mat 2.30pm.
