The Book Thief

The world premiere stage adaptation of the bestselling novel.

In 1930s Germany, young orphan Liesel stands next to her brother’s grave and picks up a book abandoned in the snow - her first act of book thievery.

As Liesel’s appetite for books grows, so does the Nazi regime; the shadow of Death is never far away. When her foster family hide a Jewish man in the basement, danger creeps nearer and Liesel’s life will change forever.

A superbly crafted and hauntingly beautiful tale based on Markus Zusak’s worldwide best-selling novel, seen on stage for the very first time in this world premiere new musical.

This adaptation is by award-winning best-selling author Jodi Picoult (My Sister’s Keeper) and Timothy Allen McDonald (adaptor of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka and James and the Giant Peach) with songs by Kate Anderson and Elyssa Samsel (Olaf’s Frozen Adventure).
