It’s captioning awareness week this week, so we thought we’d pop together an article with some of the captioned performances in London this month. You can always check out the list of upcoming captioned performances on our access page, or head over to our access brochure to have a look at all the upcoming access performances over the next few months.

Mamma Mia!

Saturday 16 November 3pm

This classic musical is jam-packed full of energy. Featuring hit after hit from Abba’s back-catalogue, the show is full of impressive dance numbers and a heavy pinch of 1970s glamour. And of course, most importantly: flares.

Groan Ups

Saturday 16 November 7.30pm

Following an unruly classroom of toddlers through their awkward teenage years all the way to a school reunion at 30, Groan Ups charts the life span of 5 characters. With the classic comedy we’ve come to expect from the Mischief Theatre Company, you’ll be laughing and cringing in equal measures.

The Mousetrap

Tuesday 19 November 7.30pm

68 years on, we’re still desperate to find out whodunnit. Agatha Christie’s famous murder mystery, The Mousetrap, follows a group of strangers stuck in a countryside hotel in the middle of a snowstorm. But when the local police call to tell them there’s a murderer on the loose, who can be trusted?

Stray Dogs

Thursday 21 November 7.45pm

Based on real-life events, Stray Dogs follows the story of Russian poet Anna Akhmatova in 1940s USSR. Even while she’s losing family all around her to Stalin’s purges, the Man of Steel himself wants a favour. But how far will she go to save a life?

Saturday 23 November 2.30pm

Based on the beloved Roald Dahl book, with music and lyrics from musical comedian Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical is a delightful production of the well-known tale. If the 86 major international awards (including 7 Olivier Awards!) aren’t enough to persuade you then we don’t know what is!

White Christmas

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
