GO Theatre In Birmingham

Theatre in Birmingham You don’t have to go to London to experience some excellent theatre. England’s “second capital” has a range of great venues in which to see some quality musicals, touring productions, and new drama.

The Alexandra Theatre [map], Station Street, is a beautiful Edwardian theatre that seats 1,347. The big names come to The Alexandra and you can expect to see a full programme of pre and post West End productions, touring shows, opera, ballet, musicals and concerts.

A theatre with a more recent history is the world-respected Birmingham Repertory Theatre [map], Centenary Square, Broad Street.

Sir Barry Jackson opened this theatre in 1913 shortly before the World War I on Station Street. The company later moved to the current impressive building, which is close to the Symphony Hall in 1971.

If you want to see some truly original and exciting drama head to The Hall Green Little Theatre [map], Pemberley Road, Acocks Green. Built by drama enthusiasts in 1950 the Hall Green Little Theatre has a strong commitment to new plays and presents around 10 plays a year in the main Veitch Theatre and the Signature Studio.

Another new writing venue can be found at Solihull Arts Complex [map], Library Square, Homer Road, Solihull. This large arts venue comprises of a 340-seat theatre, exhibition hall and art gallery.

Productions on a grand scale are the order of the day at The Hippodrome Theatre [map], Hurst Street. Affectionately known as the “The Old Lady of Hurst Street” this theatre dates back to 1899 when it opened as The Tower of Varieties and Circus. In 1903 it became known as the Hippodrome and since then it has established itself as the Midland’s leading theatre.
