The SEC offers exciting possibilities for touring productions specialising in musical theatre and comedy.
The SEC Armadillo has staged successful runs of ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Joseph’ and ‘Hairspray’,and is set to strengthen it’s reputation as a world class theatre venue with the arrival of the National Theatre's production of "War Horse" in January and February 2019. The SEC Armadillo has also played host to a number of Drag Acts and lends itself well to this genre of entertainment. Its capacity of 3,000 exceeds other theatre options in Glasgow.
Our family focused pantomime attracts more than 60,000 visitors annually and proves just how practical the auditorium is for hosting theatre events.
Elsewhere on campus, innovative productions like the Cirque Du Soleil, National Theatre of Scotland’s ‘Black Watch’ and ‘Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour’ are prime examples of utilising flexible space to present unique events. We have also hosted opera, ballet and dance productions for an enthusiastic theatre audience in greater Glasgow and beyond.
With a capacity of almost 13,000, The SSE Hydro is the perfect venue for staging arena style productions, whilst retaining an intimate theatre feel. In recent years we have staged Jesus Christ Superstar, Mrs Brown's Boys and Still Game.
Our venues have also played host to some of the top comedy acts touring the UK in recent years, such as Michael McIntyre, John Bishop, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Hart and Kevin Bridges, who is looking forward to taking the stage for 19 performances throughout October and November 2018. We are also proud to act as a key venue for the Glasgow International Comedy Festival.
