“Berwick marvellous Kayler”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Oh my goodness, a friend invited me to see Robin Hood and his Merry Mam. I have neither enjoyed nor laughed at anythng so much in ages. What an absolute tonic, went to work the following day feeling like I'd had the best spa treatment ever. Needless to say be booked tickets for me, hubby and son this thurs and it's their first time too. Berwickshire cover of Gangnam style, pure class. I will be queueing in march for decembers performance that's for sure.

Theatre Royal is central and an excellent place for a night at the theatre. Did not think that this year's panto was as good as previous ones.

“Great theatre for Panto silliness!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This theatre is lovely, an interesting mix of a very traditional performance space along with a smaller studio and a very modern glass-fronted bar area. The staff are all lovely, very friendly and helpful. Wherever you sit you are pretty much guaranteed a decent view. We saw the annual panto which was fab.

“Hilarious pantomime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This was our fourth York panto and Berwick Kaler was brilliant as ever in his usual role as the dame, this time as Hettie Hood, mother of Robin. The way satirical comments, banter between actors as actors and the story itself are all woven together with the traditional mix of slapstick and song was highly entertaining. One of the highlights was the video footage of The Panto Style number, a spoof of Gangnam Style.
The venue itself was welcoming and prettily decorated, with a pleasant cafe bar adjoining the foyer. Our theatre seats were comfortable and we had a great view. All in all, a great night out.
