Sadler’s Wells today announces its production of Message In A Bottle, the acclaimed dance theatre show by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Kate Prince, set to the music of 17-time Grammy Award-winning icon Sting, will embark on a major 10-stop North American tour in 2024.

The production will tour theatres of the United States and Canada starting in February in Los Angeles, then stopping in Denver, Chicago, Montreal, Toronto, Boston, Charlotte, Washington DC, New York City and finishing in May in Philadelphia.

The stage show is currently on a UK and international tour, next performing at Sadler’s Wells’ West End venue The Peacock Theatre in London for two weeks in October. The show then stops in Sydney, Australia before a tour of The Netherlands.

Message In A Bottle is an imagined story about one displaced family, and a universal story of survival, hope and love. A village alive with joyous celebrations is suddenly under siege. Determined and daring, three parted siblings step out on their own extraordinary adventures.

Songs including “Every Breath You Take”, “Roxanne”, “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” and “Fields of Gold” feature in new arrangements by Alex Lacamoire, recorded by Sting and guest artists including Olivier Award-winner Beverley Knight. The show features the astonishing talents of dance storytelling powerhouse, ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company.   Message In A Bottle is produced by Sadler’s Wells and Universal Music UK co-produced with Birmingham Hippodrome and The Lowry, Salford.

Suzanne Walker, Sadler’s Wells Executive Producer said, “We’re thrilled to be bringing Message In A Bottle to North American theatres for the first time. The universal themes of the show resonate around the world, and we are excited for new audiences in the United States and Canada to experience the incredible dance by Kate Prince set to Sting’s iconic music in this production.”
