9 All-Singing, All-Dancing West End Shows You Can’t Miss This Christmas!

London has a musical theatre scene that’s the envy of the world.

Are you the kind of person who wishes that life would erupt into spontaneous song and dance numbers more often? If you’ve answered yes, then you definitely need to get down to one of these West End shows this Christmas. The lovely folks at Fever have got tickets for all kinds of musicals, and you can get your hands on some. You’ll see genies, Mormons, lions and witches (but no wardrobes) if you pick up a ticket to one of these shows!

1. The Lion King

There’s a reason it’s been on the stage in London for eighteen years. The tale of Simba and pals is a timeless tale that perfectly evokes the beats and rhythms of Africa – and let’s be honest, you know most of the songs already, don’t you? Get your tickets with Fever and you’ll feel hakuna matata! PS: That means no worries for the rest of your days!

2. The Nutcracker

Pirouetting back to London for another year, the festive ballet is a Christmas favourite. Set to Tchaikovsky’s beautiful score, the story of Clara and her enchanted nutcracker will transport you to the magical Land of Snow. Perfect if London once again fails to turn into a snowy wonderland – book here just in case!

3. Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight Sonata’ by Candlelight

If you’d prefer a more relaxing musical experience, then this might be the event for you. Enjoy a night of candlelit classical music performed by Daniel Grimwood, who by all accounts is a very talented chap. Fever have got you covered with tickets.

4. Wicked

The reviews are in and Wicked is, well, wicked. The story of witches both good and bad is full of rousing musical numbers which will lift you right off of the ground – some might even say that you’ll be defying gravity… Grab your ticket and some ruby slippers, because you’re off to Oz!

5. Matilda

The musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved book took the West End by storm when it opened back in 2011, and is still hugely popular today. A young girl with extraordinary abilities, along with a rollicking score by Australian impresario Tim Minchin, make this a must-see. Find your hidden power, along with your tickets, through Fever.

6. Music from Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings

Finally, your chance to immerse yourself in a fantasy realm without having to worry about marauding orcs or scheming Lannisters. An amazing, immersive concert experience will be playing the tunes from your favourite fantasy series, for one night only. One way tickets to Middle-Earth and Westeros are available here.

7. Book of Mormon

Have you heard the good news? Take two Mormon missionaries, drop them in Uganda, add some distinctly NSFW musical numbers, and there you have the Book of Mormon. You’ll be rolling in the aisles by the time the curtain falls on this ludicrously funny production, so grab yourself some tickets ASAP!

8. Aladdin

How about a musical which will show you the world? One of Disney’s best-loved films hit the London stage last year, bringing amazing special effects and incredible costumes with it. There’s only one way to find out if a street urchin can win the love of a princess, and that’s by nabbing your tickets here.

9. An American in Paris

They say that nothing compares to Paris in the spring, but this musical comes pretty close. Full of dance, love, and pursuing your dreams, the story of a romance between an American painter and a French dancer has taken the West End by storm. It’s been stacking up awards and accolades ever since it opened, so maybe its time for a trip to Paris – your passport and ticket are available here.
