The glitziest, most glamorous productions passing through Glasgow often land at the King's Theatre, with productions of Broadway and West End plays and musicals sitting on a programme with physical theatre and circus acts. The odd megastar comedian or retro musical act also graces the stage of King's Theatre, which first opened its doors in 1904.

went to see snow white and the seven dwarfs at the kings theatre last night...BRILLIANT.....all the cast were great.....thought it wouldn't be the same without gerrard.....but outstanding...although gerrard was sadly missed.....i liked how he was mentioned through the show...a tear in my thinking about him...but the cast did him proud i'm sure he's looking down on them and having a great time......well done again to cast....looking forward to next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
