What’s On at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre
Aylesbury Waterside Theatre has a fantastic events schedule in 2023, with some of the best of the West End and touring theatre right on your doorstep. Fans of musicals are spoilt for choice over the summer, when Strictly Ballroom, directed by Craig Revel Horwood and starring Kevin Clifton, and cult classic The Rocky Horror Show both visit Aylesbury in July.
If you want to be spooked, ghostly West End play The Woman in Black is perfect for darkening Autumn nights, whilst hilarious, high-energy backstage farce Peter Pan Goes Wrong flies into town in October. In November, the highlight of Aylesbury Waterside Theatre events is The Full Monty; the cheeky British comedy about steelworkers turned strippers celebrates 25 years in this brand new tour.
About the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre
Aylesbury Waterside Theatre was officially opened by Cilla Black on 12 October 2010, during a live celebratory event attended by stage stars including Simon Callow, David Suchet and Ruby Wax. The town’s council first began plans for the venue in 2003, with a view for it to replace the Civic Theatre that sat in the same location. The construction’s traditional topping out ceremony was completed by locally-born actress Lynda Bellingham in April 2009, ahead of its official opening and first performance, Northern Ballet’s Swan Lake, the following year.
Located in Aylesbury’s vibrant town centre, the theatre is currently managed by the Ambassador Theatre Group. With an exterior design inspired by the rolling Chiltern Hills that surround the town, the building is a multi-purpose venue, equipped with cutting-edge technology. It hosts large touring musicals, tribute bands, film screenings, children’s shows and a range of other events including Aylesbury’s popular annual pantomime.
