Shaftesbury Theatre

På Boxing Day 1911, teatret åpnet med en produksjon på The Three Musketeers. Melville brødrene ble populært Lekehus Ltd og The Princes Theatre ble født. Teatret skiftet navn til den nye Princes Theatre i 1914 og repertoaret ble sakte utvidet under ny leder Seymour Hicks i 1916 as light operettas such as Andre Messager’s Monsieur Beaucaire starring the famous soprano Dame Maggie Teyte were introduced. This tradition was then continued on by Sir Charles Cochran, a famous veteran of variety, who presented the first Gilbert and Sullivan seasons by the D’Oyly Carte Company. The company returned over the following three decades celebrating nearly every opera written by Gilbert and Sullivan.
