Groan UpsA new play from Mischief Theatre, the creators of The Play That Goes Wrong, Groan Ups is a show all about growing up. The brand-new comedy questions whether we're the same people at 30 as we were when we were 13 by throwing a number of grown-up problems at an unruly classroom of kids and anarchic high school teenagers. The new production premieres at the Vaudeville Theatre this September.

About Vaudeville Theatre

Designed by CJ Phipps, the Vaudeville is the third theatre to be built on this site. The current Vaudeville opened on 23rd February 1926 with a revue called RSVP. One of the theatre's major successes was in 1954 with the musical 'Salad Days', starring Julian Slade and Deborah Reynolds. More about Vaudeville Theatre
