Yes they have great shows and the pre theatre bar and eatery are fine but why oh why can they not come into the 21st century and let you take a drink in . In common with other local attractions , the Maddermarket theatre, the playhouse theatre . Cinema city to name but a few .

Good production of Joesph, well acted and lovely atmosphere. Unfortunately there were no cup holders, this something that could be added. Bar is has a lot of variety and the facilities as a whole were good. Overall I would return

The theatre is putting on such a great variety of performances, I have never been disappointed. If you live in the area a friends and family membership is very worth while. The seat are comfortable and the views, even from cheaper seats, are great.

Most of us are familiar with Joseph but it was worth travelling to Norwich to see this production. It was performed by a very talented and enthusiastic Company and the singing was terrific.
