i really love a visit to the theatre and go here quite often, the last visit was to see Shrek, and it was brilliant. The staff at theatre royal are always pleasant and helpful, the place is always clean and i don't think you can beat it for value for money and entertainment value.

Good theatre. Very wheelchair friendly! Helpful staff. And wow what a show. Great fun! Lord Farqua was hilarious!!! Songs were great, although only one from the movie, but great nonetheless.
