The magnificent Aylesbury Waterside Theatre is £47 million theatre in, well, Aylesbury, of Buckinghamsire, England. What you can expect is West End musicals, touring musicals, plays, opera, ballet, dance, comedy, children's shows and of course Christmas pantomines.
It all began in 2003 with well thought out plans for a replacement to the Civic Centre Theatre. And 7 years later the theatre opened, on 12th October 2010 by none other than Cilla Black. It was an open air event hosted by Jonathan Wilkes and Suzanne Shaw with guests David Suchet, Simon Callow, Ruby Wax, Susan Hampshire and Richard O'Brien. Eric Idle sent a pre-recorded message.
An incredibly beautiful venue, both externally and internally, the acoustics are part of this beauty. The venue uses the 'Carmen electroacoustic enhancement system" which is allows for adjustments to bass for reverb customisations for symphonies and choral performances. The venue itself is a architectural landmark internationally.
