Theatre

  • Ben and Holly

    Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom will be live on stage at Richmond Theatre on June 5-6. If you're keen to delve further into this magical world of fairies and elves, here are five fun facts you probably didn't know!

  • Exciting Science!

    A new touring theatre show is bringing the fun and crazy bits of science to the stage for kids. We caught up with the mad scientists before they go ka-pow at the Harlequin Theatre later this month.

  • Everyone’s talking about… The Guilty Feminist

    Love the podcast? Good news - its creator is coming to a Surrey this month. We grabbed super-talented comedian Deborah Francis-White for a chinwag.

  • Captain Corelli’s Mandolin

    Melly Still and Rona Munro’s adaptation of Louis de Bernières classic novel is a triumph of theatre - turning a glorious mixture of drama, dance, movement and music into a satisfying whole.

  • Les Musicals

    Jai McDowall and Jonathan Ansell are the mahoosive voices belting out the tunes in the touring show Les Musicals which comes to Richmond Theatre on Fri 10 May. Here's what they get up to when they're not on stage.

  • Your 2019 culture guide

    Want to make the most of 2019? Muddy's culture vulture Kerry Potter has curated the best new TV, music, theatre, film, books and art of the year. Get yer diary out!

  • Panto! Aladdin

    Muddy intern Alice Ridsdale reviews Aladdin at the Leatherhead Theatre - and her verdict? It's a guaranteed good time. Oh yes it is!

  • Hansel and Gretel

    The Rose Theatre's adaptation of Hansel and Gretel is a fabulous feel-good fable with a wonderfully festive twist - and I couldn't recommend it enough.

  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

    Don't eat the manky apple, Snow White! Oops, too late. Read our review of the Harlequin Theatre's seasonal show, starring - oh yeah! - Ann Widdecombe.

  • Panto! Cinderella

    Does Cinders get to the ball on time. Does the prince find his princess? Is this a traditional panto in all the best ways? Oh yes it is! Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, you've done it again!
