The producers of the highly acclaimed UK tour of Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em have announced rescheduled dates in 2022. This second UK tour was cut short when theatres were closed by the Government because of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020, but is due to recommence on Tuesday 29 March 2022 at The Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage.
The stage adaptation of Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em is by Guy Unsworth, based on the original TV series by Raymond Allen.
Joe Pasquale will reprise the role of the loveable but accident-prone Frank Spencer, with Sarah Earnshaw as his long-suffering wife Betty. Both are due to star in the UK tour of April in Paris from 17 May 2021, making it one of the very first stage shows to open this year.
Further casting is to be announced.
Joe Pasquale said “sadly, we had to close the show just three weeks into the tour in March 2020 when the pandemic started, so I cannot wait until I can once again don the iconic mac of Frank Spencer in one of Britain’s funniest comedies of all time.”
Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em will now play The Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage from 29 March – 2 April, Yvonne Arnaud, Guildford from 5 – 9 April, The Beck Theatre, Hayes from 12 – 16 April, Tyne Theatre and Opera House, Newcastle from 17 – 21 May, Richmond Theatre from 31 May – 4 June, The Orchard Theatre, Dartford from 7 – 11 June, Aylesbury Waterside Theatre from 21 – 25 June, Palace Theatre, Southend from 12 – 16 July, The Alexandra, Birmingham from 19 – 23 July, Stoke Regent Theatre from 26 – 30 July, St Helens Theatre Royal from 2 – 6 August and Kings Theatre Portsmouth from 9 – 13 August.
