Groan Ups is hitting the road for its first ever UK tour in 2021 – here’s all you need to know.

From 2021 Groan Ups tour tickets to the cast, upcoming dates and venues, this is your guide to the show on the road.


Groan Ups is a comedy all about growing up. Following an unruly classroom of six year-olds as they journey through anarchic teenage life, through to adulthood, this comedy asks the real questions – do we choose who we become? Is the story of our lives already written? Do we ever really grow up?

Groan Ups premiered in the West End at the Vaudeville Theatre in September 2019 and also featured on the Royal Variety Performance in the presence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
