Musical

Thoroughly enjoyed the Musical Oh What a Lovely War. A full house appreciated the talents of all the actors especially the ones taking numerous parts. A great night out.

We went to see Rebecca expecting a traditional murder mystery type performance. What we got was amazing - music, comedy, drama and more from an amazing cast. Top notch. The theatre itself is a beautiful building, harking back to its glorious past. Leg room a little tight as expected, but being such a small theatre moving around was no problem... More

One of those in Bath things to do, if the performances align with your fancy ( and even better if you do not have parking costs in Bath) Arrive without the car, walk, cycle, bus, train, taxi etc...

The Theatre Royal feels like a step back in time. Its gorgeous. The auditorium is compact and has an intimate atmosphere. Its beautifully restored with a spectacular chandelier. My only criticism is the lack of leg room and the odd pillar which can be restricting .

An absolute gem of a theatre and we were so lucky to see the first night of a world premiere of a new set of Ayckbourn short plays - directed by the Author. Even luckier as we'd won the two tickets in a raffle!

Myself and my Mother visited Bath this weekend and went to watch the Nutcracker at the Theatre Royal. We both thought that the theatre was beautiful and the staff were extremely helpful. We were sat in the Grand Circle in Seats C1 & C2 - and the view was just perfect, we could see the stage very clearly and didn't... More

Always a delight to visit the Theatre Royal. Bath is a magic place anyway and its theatre is very much part of that. The auditorium and stage are big enough to host major productions and yet you never feel distant from the action on the stage. The recent refurbishment means it has good modern facilities even though you are in... More
