The Lyceum has cancelled the remainder of its 2019/20 season and has put the building into “hibernation” until the end of the year. For further details see our news story “Hibernation” For Lyceum.

The box office staff are working from home to contact all ticket holders. The Adam Buxton date has been re-scheduled to 2021, and there is a possibility that some productions will be moved into next season. Christmas show, The Snow Queen, will now take place in the 2021/22 season.

The theatre has two strands of pandemic activity – Letters to the Lyceum and Curtain Up. Further details in news story here: House Lights Up!


Daniel Kitson: Dot. Dot. Dot.
Sunday 1/Monday 2 November 2020
Evening: 8pm
Daniel Kitson presents his account of six ridiculous and devastating months, experienced largely from a safe distance, almost immediately misremembered and retold here so inaccurately as to be, very nearly fictional. Conceived and written specifically to be performed in and streamed from empty theatres with audience capacity limited to that of each venue, this will hopefully be a lot more fun than it sounds. Book here.

The Snow Queen
Adapted from the story by Hans Christian Andersen

When the beautiful and fearsome Snow Queen steals Kay away and takes him to her frozen kingdom, she leaves behind his sister, the brave and brilliant Gerda, who will stop at nothing to rescue her sibling. But before she can do so, the Snow Queen lodges a sliver of her magical ice into the boy’s eye and heart, turning the once loving and gentle Kay cold and mean. Can Gerda, with the help of friends she meets along the way, track her brother through the magical, wintery world of the Snow Queen and melt his frozen heart before it’s too late? Book here.
