my sister and I who only see each once a year visited the Plaza last Friday 15 May and enjoyed a short play with just 2 actors in it. We were advised when we arrived that there was no interval but the Bar would be open at the end of the Show (9pm). As we were on a very very... More

petercmoore, Social Media Manager at Plaza Theatre, responded to this review

We are sorry that you were disappointed at not finding the bar open after the end of The Last Five Years show. Because the show has a short running time, and for other logistical reasons, we had decided not to open the bar for this show. Unfortunately, it appears that not all our front-of-house volunteers were aware of this decision,... More

On its website, the Plaza theatre has an endorsement from Sir Ian McKellen: "..my advice is don't miss out on an opportunity to discover Romsey's lovely theatre" I would endorse this wholeheartedly. The Plaza is owned and operated by a thriving, enthusiastic and very talented amateur dramatic society - RAODS - who put on around 12 shows a year. They... More

The plays put on at the Plaza are well produced and directed with an accomplished group of actors. They are very reasonably priced and generally good value. From time to time there are also concerts, usually by the excellent Michelmersh Silver Band. The bar is licenced and open before the show and during the interval.

If only professional theatres were as well run as this audiences sizes would double. We have just seen an amazing production of Les Miserables. Three weeks ago we had seen a youth production at a professional theatre in Hampshire but, interestingly, found this show to have a far higher standard in all respects. The complex and demanding opera took great... More

A wonderful little theatre. It has a wide range if shows running throughout the year. The standards are very high and ticket prices extremely reasonable. Do take a trip to see a show there. You won't be disappointed.

This is a definite if you are into local amateur theatre productions. Programs change frequently and are well supported in this small ex cinema, well worth the visit.

This was my first visit to the Romsey Plaza. I had high expectations from what I had heard about this old theatre and was not disappointed. We had a drink in the cosy upstairs bar which was crowded but you could take your drinks into the auditorium in a plastic glass if you wanted. Some of the actors wandered through... More
