Father’s Day is a time to give thanks and show your appreciation for the male role models in your life: dads, brothers, uncles, granddads, and anyone who you may consider to be a father figure. Instead of gifting a pair of socks, a t-shirt, or something that’ll end up in the cupboards, spend your Father’s Day at the theatre and create lifelong memories together.

There’s plenty of West End shows on Father’s Day you can see. Why not go back in time at hit musicals like Back to the Future: The Musical, or raise a glass at The Choir of Man. Or if you’re planning a belated Father’s Day get together, secure your tickets to Tom, Dick & Harry and a Marvel-themed Secret Cinema experience. Here are our top picks for West End shows to see for Father’s Day. 

Book tickets to West End shows on TodayTix.


To Kill a Mockingbird

Atticus Finch is a heroic single parent and father figure. Not only does he demonstrate to his children that working hard allows you to achieve in life, but his courageous actions show that it’s okay to be yourself and you don’t have to listen to anyone else. Join Atticus Finch and his children, Jem and Scout, in To Kill a Mockingbird on stage. The Harper Lee novel follows a local court case which escalates as the community voice their opinions on all parties involved. Whether you’ve read the book or just heard of the title, we can guarantee To Kill a Mockingbird will entertain everyone this Father’s Day.

Doc Brown and Marty McFly in Back to the Future. Doc has a wacky hat on, and Marty is holding a wire attached to it up to his forehead

Back to the Future: The Musical

It’s always fun to go on adventures with your dad! And you might be able to get up to more mischief too. Thankfully, our dads aren’t quite as zany as Doc Brown, a mad scientist who creates a time-travelling DeLorean to whisk himself and teenager Marty McFly back to 1955. Together, the pair must ensure history repeats itself to get back… to the future. Back to the Future is a shining example of male camaraderie and friendship, as well as finding father figures out of unsuspecting characters. See the Olivier-winning Best New Musical in London now.

Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen

Look, we know that Dear Evan Hansen is a musical about mums. However, there’s plenty of fatherly advice given throughout the show too. Larry Murphy explains to Evan Hansen in “To Break In A Glove” that you can’t give up on things easily. And while we can’t have Larry Murphy as a real-life father, we can spend time with the Murphy and Hansen families in Dear Evan Hansen. The three-time Olivier-winning musical follows Evan, a teenage boy whose storytelling becomes a viral sensation. Dear Evan Hansen plays its final West End performance in October, so book now to avoid missing out!

Jersey Boys

Some West End musicals feature new, original scores. Other musicals celebrate the chart-topping tracks of yesteryear. So this Father’s Day, why not treat your dad to the nostalgia-fuelled musical, Jersey Boys. Jersey Boys follows the lives of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons as they navigate a turbulent road to superstardom. It may look all glitz and glamour, but most days, it’s anything but fabulous. Jersey Boys is also packed with Four Seasons hits: “Beggin’,” “Sherry,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes off You” to name a few.

Tony Blair Rock Opera

Tony! [The Tony Blair Rock Opera]

Talking about politics with your father may not be a usual conversation starter. But, when you combine it with trademark Harry Hill silliness, you’re guaranteed an entertaining evening at the theatre. In his latest musical, follow Tony Blair — Labour Prime Minister and former rock star singer  — as he navigates a life under many spotlights. If you’re looking for a satirical comedy, then the Park Theatre is the place for you this Father’s Day.

David Harbour

Mad House

Father’s Day is usually a time of year to plan a family reunion. But instead of sitting around the table for a roast dinner, sit in the theatre and see Mad House. It’s set to be the latest family drama, but instead of pleasant chitchat, arguments and accusations are flown across the time. Stranger Things star David Harbour and Bill Pullman lead the Mad House cast. If your family discussions aren’t always squeaky clean, then Mad House is sure to shine a light on “normal” relationships.

The Choir of Man

The Choir of Man

Is your dad the type of person to spend all their free time in the pub? Instead of doing the same thing over and over again, spend a Father’s Day happy hour at The Choir of Man. The feel-good show is an homage to British pub traditions, and features songs by Avicii, Sia, and Paul Simon. There’s even a fully-working pub on stage, so if you’re sitting near the front, you might even be invited for a (free) pint! The Choir of Man returns to the West End this autumn.

Secret Cinema Marvel

Secret Cinema X Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy

You probably regard your most-loved father figures as superheroes. They’re seemingly able to do tons of things at the same time all while finding the moments to check in with you. So for a belated Father’s Day gift, delve into the Marvel superhero universe at Secret Cinema x Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy. Get lost in different worlds and see if you could save the planets in this immersive experience. Then once the acting’s over, you can watch the film together. Grab a popcorn bucket for us!

Tom Dick and Harry

Tom, Dick & Harry

Do the older father figures in your life share stories of past wars? Do they typically tune into war documentaries? Instead of sitting in front of the television this Father’s Day, plan a great escape to the theatre to see Tom, Dick & Harry. The true story follows prisoners as they escape a prisoner of war camp through three tunnels. Stories that were once classified now take centre stage in this inspiring World War Two play.
