The bar, the staff, the management, the actual theatre, the stage, everything about this venue is amazing. They are very friendly and helpful with cast, crew and audiences alike, whether you're there to watch one show, or doing a 2-month run. The theatre itself is fantastic with a big stage.

Your map location of this theatre is not accurate by about a mile and on wrong side of River Clyde? The theatre is on the south side of the river.

Voted best night ever at the theatre by our family- beating west end productions of Charlie! Fantastic cast, fun stage set, great music - great, great, great night out and the best vfm around. Not a panto, so don't go expecting that, and possibly not for under 7s but our 8 and 9 yr olds loved it and managed to... More

Went to see The Jungle Book with grandson. This was advertised as suitable for 6 years+, something it most certainly was NOT!!. The themes, dialogue and music were adult, at times reminiscent of very dark Shakespeare (but without any of the Bard's saving graces). The music was also very, very loud and kids were screaming in terror throughout the theatre.... More

The "Citz" is an excellent little theatre with excellent productions. I have attended a few over the years and I have really never been disappointed. There is also a reasonably priced bar for coffee or drinks at the interval.
