Your Top 10 #IceCreamShows

First Published 2 July 2015, Last Updated 2 July 2015

Yesterday was hot. So hot. Hotter than Tony Manero’s pants at the height of disco season. Hotter than the Phantom’s lair when he’s having a crazy candle day. Hot enough to melt the Wicked Witch of the West without a bucket of water. Hotter than… well, you get where we’re going.

It was, frankly, too hot to work. So instead we took to Twitter to play silly games with show names. It was the only sensible thing to do.

We could have picked any puntastic game, but we’d just been discussing MasterCard’s free ice cream promotion at our Leicester Square ticket booth TKTS. Can’t think what could have sparked that cool and tasty discussion.

The deal is this: Until 12 July, buy your tickets at TKTS with a MasterCard and you could get a free ice cream voucher that the chilled out folks at your theatre will swap for a pot of delicious coldness. Vouchers are limited, so it’s first come first served, and the majority of the shows being sold at TKTS are taking part in the summertime treat-fest. There are full Ts and Cs on the Priceless London website.

So what did you come up with? A veritable knickerbockerglory of linguistic invention ranging from The Would You Like A Cherry On Top Orchard to Whippy Down The Wind. We were so impressed we put together a top 10 for you to enjoy.

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.
