A message from 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. 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. 

Most of the theatres I’m currently visiting with my new solo show are well-known to me, as actor and audience. This, though, is my first time onstage in Buxton, a happy opportunity to support Learning and Engagement and Young Company productions at the Opera House. See you there, I hope!
