History

The Victoria Palace Theatre was designed by theatre architect Frank Matcham and first opened its doors in 1911, presenting a variety of revues and small musicals. Early productions included The Chelsea Follies (1930), Young England (1934) and Me and My Girl (1937).

Subsequent shows were a selection of variety performances that began post-war, followed by The Crazy Gang (1947) and the long-running Black and White Minstrel Show (1962-1972), followed by Carry On London (1974) and Elizabeth Taylor in The Little Foxes (1982).

The 1980’s saw productions including Charlie Girl (1986), musical High Society (1987) and Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story (1989-1995), as well as Jolson (1995), Fame – The Musical (2000), Kiss Me Kate (2002), Grease (2002-2003) and Tonight’s the Night (2003-2004).

2005 saw the long-running Billy Elliot the Musical open at the theatre, based on Lee Hall’s hit film. The production originally starred Tim Healy and Haydn Gwynne, going through a range of famous faces including Ruthie Henshall, before closing in 2016 to undergo a multi-million pound refurbishment.

November 2017 saw the Victoria Palace Theatre re-open with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway smash-hit musical Hamilton, which continues to play to sold-out audiences.
