BGT judge Amanda Holden stars in Stepping Out at the Vaudeville Theatre
Fans of Amanda Holden will welcome her return to the London stage with a double dose of the actress in the next six months beginning with a star-turn as the Fairy Godmother in the London Palladium’s Christmas pantomime Cinderella. Then its a quick change into sequins and tap-shoes as she leads an all star-cast in a revival of the award winning comedy Stepping Out written by Richard Harris and first performed in the West End in 1984.
Stepping Out Theatre Breaks will tap their way into the Vaudeville theatre in March 2017 and joining Ms Holden on stage will be ex-Corrie actress Angela Griffin, ex-Eastenders Tamsin Outhwaite and Tracy-Ann Oberman. With ex-Brookside actress Nicola Stephenson also in the show it’ll be a battle of TV soaps!
The comedy is about a group of six women and one man who join an evening dance class and end up tap dancing their way into a local competition. As you would expect nothing runs smoothly and with the clash of different characters expect fireworks.
Hotels close to the Vaudeville theatre & Stepping Out
The Vaudeville Theatre is just a few strides from the 3 star Strand Palace Hotel, one of Theatreland’s most favoured hotels. If four star is more your style then you can’t go far wrong with the Charing Cross turn right outside the theatre and it is on the other side of the road. Of course, if you don’t mind crossing the road then you are almost directly opposite the world-famous Savoy Hotel and just along the Strand to the left is the ultra trendy 5 star ME London hotel with its uniquely named rooms and its cool bars and restaurants.
Wander towards Holborn and the 4 star Kingsway Hall on Great Queen Street is a cut above the rest and one of Theatre Breaks favourite hotels.
If you don’t want to stay nearby you can catch the underground form nearby Covent Garden and Charing Cross tube stations. You can walk across the Thames where hotels, on the south side of the river, are a bit cheaper. Take a moment to enjoy the beautiful views up and down the Thames as you cross it – especially breathtaking when it’s all lit up at night!
