Looks depressing from the outside - it's like a long, boring box You wouldn't know it was a theatre if it wasn't for the signs. Once inside however,things dramatically improve. and it is more like the grand theatre you expect. Large,comfortable seating. Godd atmosphere. Saw West Side Story here and the large stage gave the huge cast plenty of room... More

It was a privilege to be there to see a production in which a former student was now musical director. A good theatre, usual design with no aisles in the centre of the seating. PA was a bit patchy.

Norwich Theatre Royal provides a much needed local venue for excellent touring productions. Living in pretty much the middle of nowhere in Norwich this is perfect at providing an opportunity to see top class theatre without having to travel to London, particularly the Northern Ballet's productions which visit regularly. The Theatre itself is well maintained, the tickets affordable and the... More

We are so lucky to be able to enjoy first class shows without having to travel to London. My only wish would be for a central aisle as it causes problems when the only access to the long row of seats is from the sides.

So many times we have enjoyed the show/theatre but have left at the interval as the seats were too small. We went to see ' Killer Queen ' enjoyed the show and the seats ( when we sat on them ) were very comfortable. We have booked for a play in January.

Just been to the theatre to see Peppa Pig with my 4 year old daughter and she loved it and wants to go again. Staff were helpful and friendly and supplied booster cushions for the children (of which there were a lot) never saw a grumpy faced member of staff the whole time we were there. Well maintained, clean and... More
