What’s On at King's Theatre Glasgow
King’s Theatre Glasgow events in 2023-2024 are offering entertainment for all tastes in the coming months. For families, December is full of magic as the annual pantomime opens. This year, Snow White promises laughs, magic and adventure for all ages. It’s swiftly followed by some other child-friendly theatre in January to wash away the winter chill: Shrek the Musical and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are brilliant fun for kids.
Other events at King’s Theatre Glasgow to look out for include Everybody's Talking About Jamie and jukebox musical The Drifters Girl in spring 2024. With sharp moves and catchy songs, these are both hugely entertaining nights out. If you want to book even further ahead, make sure you have tickets for Come From Away - the Olivier Award-winning musical that will lift your spirits with its story of community and friendship after tragedy.
About the King's Theatre Glasgow
King’s Theatre Glasgow opened in 1904, intended to be a sister venue for the city’s Theatre Royal. Renowned theatre architect Frank Matcham designed the venue with Art Nouveau and Baroque influences, and it was heralded as one of his most brilliant theatre designs.
Events that The King’s Theatre has hosted include the Royal Variety Performance in 1977, during which Dolly Parton and The Jackson Five both performed. It was later a main venue when Glasgow was named European City of Culture in 1990. The King's is perhaps best-known however for its annual pantomime, which has featured Scottish greats such as Stanley Baxter, Jimmy Logan and Jack Milroy. The theatre also supports Glasgow’s flourishing amateur theatre groups, packing in appreciative audiences throughout the year.
A traditional building that is recognised as one of the country’s top touring venues, Ambassador Theatre Group took over management of the King’s Theatre in 2002, upholding the presentation of first-class musicals, pantomime, dance and drama.
