When you head to South West London to witness productions at the New Wimbledon Theatre you will be struck by the impressive building designed by the duo of Roy Young and Cecil Aubrey Massey, whose Edwardian effort has ensured it remains an admired part in the capital.
This well known location has been serving audiences since the turn of the 20th century, with its first night performance taking place in 1910 and the continuing century welcoming even more stand-out shows at it survived two world wars and a changing landscape in an evolving world.
As a result it now emerges as a vibrant location in the 21st century, continuing to welcome big name shows and attract countless numbers of theatregoers.
Some of the big names that have graced its stage include Noël Coward, Ivor Novello, Cilla Black, Dick Emery, Martin Clunes, Brian Blessed and Richard Wilson, amongst others.
The first ever production to grace the stage of the New Wimbledon Theatre was the pantomime of Jack And Jill. Since then it has continued to welcome an array of pantomimes, including televised ones, over the decades. As such audiences have witnessed everything from Dick Wittington And His Cat to Cinderella.
It hasn’t just welcomed pantomimes, however, as the venue has also been the home of touring versions of famous West End musicals. As a result, audiences have seen shows like Top Hat, Shrek The Musical, Cabaret, Grease and many more.
