Built in 1910 the New Wimbledon Theatre is an Edwardian style Grade II listed building. The New Wimbledon Theatre is situated on The Broadway, Wimbledon.

It also contains the smaller New Wimbledon Studio Theatre, which seats up to 80 people in a more intimate and flexible space. In Autumn 2003, Wimbledon Theatre was bought out by the Ambassador Theatre Group, the second largest theatre owner in London's West End and around the UK. Following a name change to the New Wimbledon Theatre, the venue reopened in February 2004 with Matthew Bourne's production of The Nutcracker. Following this, the theatre has built up it's reputation and a large portfolio of major productions including Saturday Night Fever, Blood Brothers, Footloose, Jesus Christ Superstar and Cats. The company has produced 8 pantos across the UK for 2005-6, with their flagship production being Cinderella.
