The new London theatre has officially launched and opened to the public and is situated close to Wembley Stadium. Here’s a look at what you can expect…
Along with a site based in White City Place, Troubadour Theatres has officially launched its Wembley Park venue, created by the award-winning team behind the King’s Cross Theatre.
This new site based in the heart of Wembley has officially opened with a production the family adventure Dinosaur World Live, which will then be followed by productions of Soul of Shaolin and the critically acclaimed National Theatre production War Horse later this year.
Located within the former Fountain Studios which were best known for having been the venue of live televised shows including The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and Pop Idol, the venue has been transformed into a flexible 1000-2000 performing space with plenty of facilities to accommodate all needs.
As well as the theatre space itself, the venue also contains large rehearsal spaces, a comfortable green room for those working backstage, large dressing rooms (complete with showers), a large bar area to purchase drinks and a soon to be completed restaurant and a cocktail style bar where on certain evenings performances will also be held.
Talking about launching Troubadour Wembley Park and Troubadour White City Theatres Oliver Royds and Tristan Baker, founders of Troubadour Theatres said: “Troubadour Theatres are designed to meet the needs of modern audiences with comfortable seating, generous toilet facilities, increased leg room and spacious, welcoming bars and restaurants. For theatre makers we know that both Wembley Park and White City Place will offer flexible, dynamic and exciting performance spaces which can be designed around their shows.”
The first production that has launched Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre is Dinosaur World Live, which continues to play at the theatre until the 1st September. This will then be followed by Chinese theatrical experience Soul of Shaolin. Running from the 26th September until the 6th October, the show combines martial arts with a story of loss and redemption.
Later in the year, the theatre will welcome the National Theatre’s production of War Horse for a strictly limited run from the 18th October until the 23rd November.
