London Theatre News Today: Wednesday 13 November

Looks like Peppa’s getting ready for her Best Day Ever! The brand new live show based on the much-loved animated kids’ series will run at the Duke Of York’s Theatre from 29 November until 5 January. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Peppa Pig Live, bringing the show to life on the stage all around the UK.

The rehearsal shots for Dick Whittington at Theatre Royal Stratford East look exciting! The cast includes Sèverine Howell-Meri as Dick Whittington, Tom Giles as King Rat, Harry Jardine as Nathaniel, Vedi Roy as Lady Lush, Bree Smith as Grandma, Lizzie Winkler as Mayor and Francesca Zoutewelle as Alice.

The production opens from 30 November; sure to deliver an appropriately magic Christmas show.

Waitress has announced its next Cast Album Karaoke Night will be hosted by cast members Sandra Marvin (Becky) and Kelly Agbowu (Nurse Norma). Taking place on 19 November, some luck fans will get the chance to sing a song from Waitress live on the West End stage at the Adelphi. All you have to do to be in with a shot is grab your tickets for that evening’s show and sign up before the performance!

Mousetrap Theatre Projects announced a special relaxed performance of School Of Rock today. Working in collaboration with LW Theatres and the Really Useful Group, the performance on Monday 20 January at 6.30pm will be tailored specially for families with children with additional needs.

The performance will be suitable for those with autism, learning difficulties or other sensory and communication needs who need a more relaxed environment. These tickets will be offered at a reduced rate. This will be the 10th Relaxed Performance hosted by Mousetrap Theatre Projects.

Susan Whiddington, Chief Executive of Mousetrap Theatre Projects said:  

“We are delighted to offer this fantastic musical to families with children with additional needs. We know how much these performances mean to families who otherwise would be unable to enjoy West End shows.  We are particularly excited about taking families to School of Rock which has been the number one requested show from families!”

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

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.
