I have special memories of the "Citz" as my husband brought me here for our second date to see Hamlet nearly 40 years ago. So it was really nice to return and see stand-up Susan Calman who also has fond memories of this theatre. The night we attended she was filming her new DVD. The show was excellent and Susan... More

Great Show but not for the politically correct brigade! The bar was very accessible and service was quick. Only negative was too many people visiting the toilet during the show.

We went as a family, Grand Children included, to see this fantastic production. We took the train from Fort William to Glasgow and onwards to the Theatre. Every one of us, small kids included, had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas treat. Well done Citizens Theatre, you did extremely well , and left us waiting for next years...

Having now seen a few shows at the Citizens I think I have caught the bug for live drama. The Citizens provides great entertainment at realistic prices with on site car parking an added bonus

Have been to 2 recent productions at this theatre. Both have been wonderful. The first was "Who Killed Johnny Glendinning" and then "A Christmas Carol " Have just received the new programme and plan to go to "The Slab Boys" with friends in February. This is a local theatre which punches above its weight and deserves support. Ticket prices are... More

The Citizens never fail to amaze me with their unique and quirky repertoire but this performance of a Christmas Carol was just outstanding and so powerfully delivered. Hope you do this again next year. Many many thanks for a beautiful evening of laughter and tears

There were six of us who went to see Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Great family entertainment. The production was simple but highly effective. A little singalong to get us going and then they slid into a wonderful production of this old classic. The casting worked well. Same old story but this show went very well. Congratulations to actors, stage... More

Would highly recommend this production to anyone. Maybe a wee bit scary for some children however a brilliant show. The wee nod to panto was fun and the puppetry was first class. Value for money was second to none. Well done citizens
