Gaiety Heritage Cultural Complex Shimla

Gaiety Heritage Cultural Complex in Shimla

Standing tall and proud, between the Ridge and the Mall Road, the Gaiety Heritage Cultural Complex Shimla has been the pride of Shimla City since it was founded in 1887, the same year as Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee Year. In its heyday, the Theatre was a place of grandiose where the social elite gathered to watch plays and socialize and the Shimla Amateur Dramatic Club found its footing.

Several decades later, the Gaiety Theatre continued to be the venue for several plays and theatrical performances. In addition to the Shimla Amateur Dramatic Club patrons and members, the Gaiety Theatre has hosted the performances of notable personalities such as Rudyard Kipling, Prithvi Raj Kapoor, the Kendall’s, Balraj Sahani, Pran, Shashi Kapoor, Raj Babbar, Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher.

At present, the Gaiety Theatre is but a part of the Gaiety Theatre Complex. It continues to be housed in the Old Town Hall, as built by the British. Now fully restored to its original grandeur, the Gaiety Theatre now has a seating capacity of 318 guests and boasts contemporary stage lights with dimmers. Plays still go on and the public can now enjoy the plays and performances by local upcoming artistes.
