by Robert Louis Stevenson

In the streets of Victorian London, respectability is mixed with murder. As two identities begin to blur, we are invited to delve into what makes Jekyll tick. Why do the bystanders choose to let him get out of control, as he battles to defeat the monstrous alter-ego inside?

A Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch pantomime
Sleeping Beauty
by Andrew Pollard

An enchanting dream of a pantomime

In a magical fairy kingdom, happy plans are underway for Princess Raury’s christening. But a bad fairy has been missed off the invite list, and descends on the party casting a wicked curse.

So when 18 year old Raury pricks her finger on a spinning wheel, and falls asleep for many years, it takes bravery and courage to wake up and face a very different world. But the bad fairy is up to more mischief, and Raury is soon setting off to the rescue, aided by her zany Nanny and family, to ensure true love can find its way…

This timeless tale will be lovingly told in classic Hornchurch style with an outrageous dame, side splitting slapstick comedy and fantastic original music played by the finest of actor musicians.

Access Info

For detailed access information please visit the theatre's access page:

Located in Hornchurch, East London, the Queen’s Theatre is an in-house producing theatre with a 500-seat auditorium. Having opened in 1953, the same year as the coronation of Queen Elizabeth, the venue is named in her honour.

The building in which the theatre resides was bought by Hornchurch District Council. Having been used for storage during the Second War, the venue was then a derelict old cinema. However, the building didn’t hold up to standards and so the local authorities constructed a new purpose-built theatre on Billet Lane, designed by Hallam and Brooks. It was opened by famous theatre director, Sir Peter Hall, in April 1975, presenting a production of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

The Queen’s Theatre has been the recipient of the UK Theatre Award for most welcoming theatre in three consecutive years (2016, 2017, 2018). The venue also plays a large part in the local community, by hosting amateur productions and providing a learning and participatory programme which involves over 11,000 participants each year, encouraging them to express themselves and their stories through theatre and the arts.

The Queen’s Theatre (Hornchurch) produces over eight shows annually and has been home to notable productions including the award-winning Blood Brothers, Return To The Forbidden Planet, and a major revival of Made In Dagenham The Musical.
