With the Hunger Games film franchise over for now, attention turns to the recently-announced stage production based on the books and films.

London stage production portal London Theatreland have added the upcoming The Hunger Games in StageAround production to their site - revealing that the planned date (yet to be formally announced by Lionsgate or Imagine Entertainment) for opening night is June 8, 2016. So pencil in your calendars if you are planning to go!

While the June date is the 'opening night', we won't be surprised if there are also preview shows as early as March/April. Major productions usually have around 2 months of previews before the official opening night.

There is also a new synopsis for the production - check it out below:
THE HUNGER GAMES SET TO LAND ON LONDON STAGE IN 2016!
Following the last installment of the record-breaking book and movie franchise, Lionsgate and Dutch entertainment group Imagine Nation are bringing the entire Hunger Games universe to a specially built theatre in Wembley for summer 2016! Follow the adventures of reluctant heroine Katniss Everdeen as she saves her sister from being selected for the annual child death match held by the Capitol, by volunteering herself. What follows is a harrowing journey from poverty to hero status as she battles for her life against the odds, with the help of fellow Tribute Peeta and their mentor Haymitch.
Can they all traverse the dystopian world of the Games and try to stay alive amid conspiracy, prejudice and horrifying violence?
With a specially built all-purpose 360-degree rotating stage, every aspect of Panem from the impoverished District 12, the opulence of the Capitol through to the action of the Games themselves will be visible for a fully immersive and nail biting experience. The Hunger Games will be produced by Tony Award-winning Broadway producer Robin de Levita (Titanic, 42nd Street and Into the Woods) with the UK's top theatre promoter Harvey Goldsmith.
The 1,300-seater Wembley Theatre, currently under construction and featuring a 360-degree rotating seating area, will host the production next summer.

Stay tuned to OfficialTheatre.com for more information on the production and tickets as it comes in!
