The Phantom of the Opera

Featuring a lush score from the legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and produced by theatrical juggernaut Cameron Mackintosh, this romantic show is the epitome of the musical theatre genre. Combining spectacular scenery and jaw-dropping special effects with some of the most mesmerising music in theatrical history, The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre will captivate you with its beauty and majesty.

The Play That Goes Wrong

Described as ‘Faulty Towers’ meets The MousetrapThe Play That Goes Wrong is guaranteed to have you rolling in the aisles. From humble beginnings at the Old Red Lion in Islington, the Mischief Theatre Company who have both written and performed The Play That Goes Wrong join the ranks of the West End delivering this innovative farce with utter precision, expert comic timing and ruthless energy.

Mamma Mia!

Set on a Greek island, Mamma Mia! at the Novello Theatre cleverly and humorously interweaves the timeless songs of ABBA with a story of love, friendship and identity, emphasising the natural narrative of Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus’ classic songs. The resulting show is the sunniest and most exhilarating evening you can have at the theatre!
