Actors are renowned for their travelling lifestyle, but these West End performers will have to get used to journeying to another dimension each night: The Twilight Zone has announced casting for its Ambassadors Theatre transfer.

Oliver Alvin-Wilson (currently starring in Nine Night), Adrianna Bertola (previously in Charlie & The Chocolate Factory) and Neil Haigh (World Cup 1966, Bristol Old Vic) will warp back in to the show from its Almeida Theatre run. They’ll be joined by Alisha Bailey (A Raisin In The Sun, Sheffield), Natasha J Barnes (Funny Girl, West End), Nicholas Karimi (Macbeth, National Theatre), Dan Crossley (Singin’ In The Rain, Chichester), Dyfan Dwyfor (Richard III, RSC), Lauren O’Neill (Reasons To Be Happy, Hampstead) and Matthew Steer (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Young Vic).

Bringing the beloved CBS television series to the stage, The Twilight Zone is directed by the multi Olivier Award-winning Richard Jones, who blends morality tales, fables and fantasy into an unnerving, absorbing and imaginative production.

The show comprises a series of incisive parables surrounding the pride, prejudice, dreams and despairs of humanity. Based on original stories by Rod Serling, the sci-fi television series had a seminal influence on pop culture, and celebrates its 60th Anniversary Year in 2019.

The Twilight Zone first opened at the Almeida Theatre in 2017, where Official London Theatre described the show as “an earnest and hugely enjoyable celebration of one of TV’s most iconic series.”

Performances begin at the Ambassadors Theatre from 4 March 2019.

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.

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.
