Ian Mckellen On Stage: With Tolkien, Shakespeare, others…and you!

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.


My current UK tour with my new solo show is visiting many places I know well but this is my first time in Doncaster. It’s a happy opportunity to celebrate my 80th birthday by raising funds for Cast’s work with children and vulnerable adults. See you there, I hope!
