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.”

Today is going to be a good day. And here’s why…
Meet Evan: an anxious high school kid who wants nothing more than to fit in. The thing is, on his way to fitting in, he didn’t tell the whole truth. And now must give up on a life he never dreamt he’d have. As events spiral and the truth comes out, Evan faces a reckoning with himself and everyone around him.
Dear Evan Hansen is presented by ATG Productions and Nottingham Playhouse by arrangement with Music Theatre International.
Dear Evan Hansen will be found on Sunderland Empire’s stage from Tuesday 19 – Saturday 23 November 2024. Tickets on sale 17 November 2023 at 10am online at https://prf.hn/l/9OpW58k *
