I have been to His Majesty's Theatre (HMT) quite a few times over a number of years, but I recently attended the theatre as part of a school trip to see Beauty and the Beast. Inside, the theatre is just stunning! All seating areas are marvellous, especially front centre dress circle. Not only were the seats comfy, the theatre was... More

I run the risk of reviewing the show more than the theatre here, but I have seen more than one show at HMT and have always enjoyed the show and the atmosphere. The theatre is conveniently located in the city centre and easily walkable from the shops in Aberdeen. Tickets are always a reasonable price and I don't think there... More

This is the second year we've been here for panto and it's been fantastic both times. We struggled to order tickets online this year so we rang them up and they were so helpful, the staff at the venue itself are very friendly and chatty. We saw beauty and the beast this year and it was fantastic and absolutely hilarious,... More

The HMT theatre is a lovely venue and the seasonal pantomime is a perfect opportunity to witness the buzzing atmosphere. The production is consistently fantastic, and I mean that when I say it. It is suitable for all ages and there are some marvellous special effects. The audience participation really gets everyone involved. This is a panto well-worth seeing. You... More

I decided to go and see this years panto in this fabulous building and wasn't disappointed, the sound quality was excellent and even though I was in seat R8 in the stalls I still saw the whole stage. The production was fantastic as well, well done everyone from the staff to the cast, will certainly be back here next year... More

As part of a xmas treat we went to see Beauty and the Beast. Overall we had a great time and the panto was hilarious (even for adults). Plenty leg room and lots of toilets! Great theatre!
