The musical, which has scooped dozens of awards including a Tony and Olivier Award following it's Broadway debut in 2016, follows Evan Hansen, a shy and socially anxious high school student who just wants to fit in. But despite his best efforts, Evan ends up telling a lie which spirals forcing him to reckon with himself and everyone around him.

Director Adam Penford said: “Dear Evan Hansen has thrilled audiences on both sides of the Atlantic since it first premiered in 2015. Evan's powerful story grips and moves people, told through a captivating script and musical score.

"This first, major, new and exciting UK production offers the opportunity to re-examine some of its contemporary themes and present this brand-new version to Nottingham and around the UK. I'm excited to begin the search for our Evan very soon.”

Directed by Nottingham Playhouse’s Artistic Director Adam Penford, the show is packed with some of the hit songs like Waving Through a Window, You Will Be Found and Words Fail. With a score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the Oscar-winning composers for The Greatest Showman, it's sure to go down a treat with UK audiences, and below, you'll find all the information on tour dates, where it's stopping off and how to get tickets for Dear Evan Hansen now.
