Deviating from the plot of the 1988 film, this Broadway musical centers around Lydia Deetz. This gal breaks the mold of your typical All-American teenage girl. She confidently follows her unique path, finding joy in writing poetry, exploring photography, and delving into the realms of the paranormal and supernatural. Unfortunately, her weirdness leads to misunderstandings with her father and stepmother.
A significant shift occurs in Lydia’s isolated life when she relocates to a new home haunted by the recently deceased couple, Barbara and Adam Maitland, along with the lively demon Beetlejuice. With the Maitlands’ assistance, Lydia embarks on a mission to thwart Beetlejuice’s audacious plans to return to life. This journey becomes a transformative coming-of-age experience for Lydia, where she not only thwarts Beetlejuice’s nefarious schemes but also discovers her own strength and resilience along the way.
So, prepare yourselves for an crazt afterlife experience as Beetlejuice welcomes you to enter a realm where the supernatural and the comedy collide. Inspired by Tim Burton’s classic film, Beetlejuice transports the mayhem and crazy of the film to the stage, showcasing incredible transformations, haunting apparitions, and larger-than-life sandworms. Regardless of whether you’re a long-time fan of the movie, or a newbie to the Beetlejuice world, you better be ready for an unforgettable theatrical experience that’ll leave you screaming… with joy!
