London’s West End Theatreland is the home to around forty theatres, some famous ones and some lesser known. We go Through The Stage Door of six of these palaces of entertainment in a tour across Theatreland where people flock from all over the world. We discover the unique and rich history of each, we learn about the buildings themselves, their unique features and we recall the performers who have been associated with each. We also hear about some macabre spirits that haunt and occupy them to this day! This is a presentation with pleasing slides that is informative and entertaining and will appeal to anyone who has ever paid a memorable visit to these, or any other theatre.

About Jim Stebbings

I am a retired professional businessman with a life-long interest in the theatre, and in particular the musical theatre. I now consider myself a music historian with particular interest and expertise in the music and lives of Gilbert and Sullivan and the American songwriters of the 20th century and whose compositions make up what is commonly called The Great American Songbook. As a result of my work on these subjects I have developed a number of other talks that all relate to each other in some way.

My talks are illustrated with the use of projector, screen, music and speakers. Each presentation is designed for 50-60 mins.
