Actress Alice Fearne dazzles in her role as Elphaba and enchants the audiences with her musical prowess to tell the story of the misunderstood witch's public fall from grace with familiar tracks like Defying Gravity

Meanwhile, stand-out star Sophie Evans is loveable as Glinda The Good, who along with Elphaba is attempting to navigate their unusual yet profound friendship.

Matilda

All the quirks of Road Dahl's classic has been bought to life in this all-singing, all-dancing musical which follows the story of the precocious 6-year-old who is wiser than her years.

The musical recently celebrated it's 5th anniversary at the Cambridge Theatre in London and it was a night to remember as Zaris Angel Hator stepped up to take the lead role.

Bright, charming and utterly adorable, the young actress captures the audiences attention throughout with her devilishly cheeky grin and holds the stage with charming numbers such as 'Naughty'.

The wider chorus sees adults play children, which certainly adds to the humour of the show, but young stars step up to play much-loved characters such as Lavender and Bruce Bogtrotter.

And who could forget Miss Trunchball? The loveable villain, played by Oliver Brooks, is as domineering and sarcastic as the memorable book character and a stand out star of the play.

If you want comedy, heartwarming songs and a bit of mischief, then this is the show for you!

La Soiree

The circus extravaganza is back in London following its stint in the Christmas market in Leicester Square last year. Now the show has moved to Aldwych Theatre for another festive run.
 
Christmas Show - La Soiree
 
It’s London’s favourite naughty cabaret circus experience – its decadent, daring and at times downright dangerous! The grandeur of the Spiegel tent is the perfect setting and actually the space feels quite intimate once your inside with glamorous ushers showing the audience to their seats and the performers singing, sauntering and even climbing over the audience throughout the show!

This is an utterly captivating show that will leave you wanting to join the circus!
