Bill Bailey

December 14, 2015-January 10, 2016

After garnering rave reviews in both Australia and New Zealand, Bill Bailey's newest tour, Limboland is finally homeward-bound for the Vaudeville this December, making this a true Christmas-time treat! The theme of the show is expectations vs reality, and Bailey provides us with excellent anecdotes about his travels, rants against the unfairness of life, and of course throws some music into the mix. Watch out for a protest song played on a copy of the Bible, and possibly the most down-beat version of Happy Birthday you will possibly hear. Let's hope that Jesus isn't listening......

The Gruffalo

December 15, 2015-January 3, 2016

Julia Donaldson's iconic children's picture book forms the background for this inventive musical stage adaptation by Tall Stories. When Mouse embarks on an adventurous journey through the deep dark wood, he encounters a myriad creatures. To warn them off, he spins wild yarns about a terrifying creature who prowls the forest. But what will happen when he comes face to face with the mythical beast - the Gruffalo - himself?

Hand to God

Opens February 5, 2016

Hand to God centre on Jason, a shy boy whose teenage angst is channelled into his hand puppet Tyrone, during the rehearsal for a church theatre group. Robert Askins' five time Tony nominee black comedy transfers to London from Broadway in 2016, bringing this hilarious hit to West End audiences for the first time, starring Harry Melling!

The Vaudeville Theatre is a West End theatre located on the Strand, and was originally built to host vaudeville shows and musical revues. Since its opening in 1870, it has been rebuilt twice while keeping some of its original features. Max Weitzenhoffer took ownership of the theatre in 2003, and in 2005, Nimax Theatres Limited took over its management. It now stages successful long-running musicals and plays.
