It’s rich! The Hit West End production of David Walliams’ Billionaire Boy is coming to Milton Keynes! – MKFM 106.3FM

Best-selling children’s author David Walliams and the award-winning Birmingham Stage Company have teamed up for a brand new Billionaire Boy tour at the MK Theater from June 30.

This is their third collaboration following the Olivier Award nominated Gangsta Granny and the acclaimed Awful Auntie productions.

Billionaire Boy tells the story of Joe Spud, who is twelve years old and is the richest boy in the country. He has his own sports car, two crocodiles as pets and £100,000 pocket money a week. But what Joe doesn’t have is a friend. So he decides to quit his posh school and start competing locally. But things don’t go as planned for Joe and life becomes a rollercoaster as he tries to find what money can’t buy!

David Walliams said: “”What a wonderful sight! If this production looked like Britain’s Got Talent, I’d give it the Golden Buzzer! It couldn’t be better!”
