From Shakespearian tragedy to Calendar Girls
New Wimbledon Theatre has seen many of the classic plays pass cross its stage, including plenty of Shakespeare. The Bard's Macbeth has virtually become a standby at the theatre with each season seemingly producing a new theatre company taking on the epic play. In a vaguely related way, more psychologically challenging plays like The Exorcist have also been a staple at the venue. Lesser known, older plays have also been performed with regularity, such as Half a Sixpence, which turned "Kipps", the HG Wells novel at the turn of 19th century, into a vibrant musical comedy starring Tommy Steele, since reprised here. At completely the other end of the spectrum, you have the likes of Calendar Girls, the musical version of the movie written by Take That's Gary Barlow and scripted by Tim Firth. This is the kind of variety that audiences have come to enjoy and indeed expect month in and month out. So when you're looking around for anything from the most performed plays in the world to cheeky musicals, New Wimbledon Theatre tickets are what you're after.
Home of a legendary British Christmas pantomime
New Wimbledon Theatre tickets also offer a lot for fans of light music and jazz. Plenty of solo artists have held live gigs there, sometimes adapting their repertoire for the venue, as in an unplugged performance. Britain's multidimensional celebrity everything, Jane McDonald has sung on stage there, and the place has become known for staging big band concerts too, like the delightfully titled Jazz in a Broad Way. There are also more unusual evenings for you to investigate. SAS operator turned reality show sergeant-major, Ant Middleton has brought his own stage show to New Wimbledon Theatre: his Mind Over Muscle tour, billed as an immersive journey of self-discovery. It's exactly the intriguing sort of show that the theatre has come to specialise in. Which isn't at all surprising – New Wimbledon Theatre is old, dating back to 1910, when its most popular show was a Jack & Jill pantomime for children. Since then, its acting alumni have included some of the biggest legends in British film and theatre: Gracie Fields, Noel Coward, Ivor Novello, to name just three. The latter half of the 20th century saw other household names performing there, especially in its international Christmas pantomime – Pamela Anderson, David Hasselhoff, Jerry Springer, Ross Kemp and Brian Blessed have all made appearances.
