IAN McKELLEN ON STAGE - Theatre Royal Windsor

What's On



A message from Sir Ian McKellen ...

I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting.

Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience. Growing up in Lancashire, I was grateful to those companies who toured beyond London and I’ve always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the RSC, the National Theatre, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions. In a lifetime of acting, it’s high time I made my debut at the most royal of Theatres Royal. My new solo show will raise funds for Theatre Royal Windsor’s Outreach Project - working with local young people.

See you there I hope!
