Ian McKellen - On Stage
Ambassador Theatre Group presents Ian McKellen On Stage with Tolkien, Shakespeare, others…and you!
‘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. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney.
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.
Growing up in Wigan and Bolton, I was always intrigued by the glamour of Blackpool, its shows and Illuminations. So I wanted to present my new solo show at the beautiful Matcham Grand Theatre, raising funds for this spectacular building. See you there, I hope!’ Ian McKellen
This event has been kindly supported by Friends of The Grand.
