WATERTOWER GOES TO LONDON

TAKE YOUR NEXT VACATION WITH US

“Before I ever visited New York City, I found my way to London as a young artist many years ago and fell in love. London, with its traditions and historic adornments throughout, is indeed the city of our modern theatre.

The West End has been the catalyst for many theatrical triumphs, dating back to the Shakespearean age. I am truly excited to share this bespoke, one-of-a-kind, tailored experience with our WaterTower Theatre family as your guide. This majestic week filled with theatre, culture, and friends awaits!” - Shane Peterman | WaterTower Producing Artistic Director
