Theatre Continues Its 100th Birthday Celebrations
The New Wimbledon Theatre has unveiled its autumn/winter season to mark the finale of its 100th birthday year, and it includes touring productions offering musicals, dance and comedies.
Annie comes to SW19 in the rags-to-riches story starring Su Pollard as the gin-soaked Miss Hannigan (November 30-December 4).
Also, just announced for early 2011 is the West End smash hit musical Hairspray, which returns to London on its first ever UK tour for two weeks only (March 15-26, 2011).
Cirque De Glace: Evolution brings to life the story of the planet, man’s evolution and a journey to the limits of technology in a stunning new ice spectacular (November 16-20).
Fresh from winning the BAFTA for Best Comedy Programme, Armstrong and Miller tour a new live show, which appears from November 22-27.
In addition to week-long shows, there are also a range of artists and productions which will play New Wimbledon Theatre for one night engagements - including laughs from Reginald D Hunter (November 21).
The year ends in traditional festive style with New Wimbledon Theatre’s annual pantomime. Having broken all previous box office records with the star-studded production of Aladdin last Christmas, this year’s production is the pirate adventure Peter Pan (December 10-January 16).
