Kings Theatre Open Day

  • Kings Theatre Albert Road Portsmouth, England United Kingdom (map)

Pantomime is finally over with a record breaking attendance this year. The staff are now looking forward to opening its doors for its annual Open Day on Saturday 14th January.  
The day promises to have something for everyone: from puppetry, arts and crafts, and storytelling for some of our younger visitors plus timed performances on stage such as Hamlet by Icarus which is a co-production with the Kings and 9 to 5 by the Portsmouth Players and not forgetting the Kings Youth Theatre.
Our archivist will be there to offer a unique behind the scenes tour, guiding you through the history of this amazing Edwardian theatre, whilst giving an insight into some of the colourful characters that have be involved in both the rescue and restoration of the building. With the history being so vast there have been reports of ghostly spirits roaming the aisles, so we have invited a paranormal expert to see if there is any truth behind the sightings.  
From 10.30am until 4pm you are welcome to explore areas of the theatre you would never normally get to see. You can also learn about the technical side of a production and how the lighting of a show can make all the difference.
The Kings Theatre only opens its doors like this once a year, so buy your tickets now. Money raised from this event go towards the restoration of the theatre.
