“Lovely old theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Great place to see a show, even more so because of the lovely old ornate theatre. Seating is a bit of a chore as seats are now all in one line with no aisle on the ground floor.

“Great Value, Nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2011

Lovely little pub next door to Theatre Royal. Good Value, nice selection of meals and really nice atmosphere even if just for a quick drink. In Campbell St, opposite Royal Hobart Hospital in so close to city centre.

“Last-minute ticket to a fun show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

I was so glad to see a show in Australia's oldest theater, "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum". The acoustics were great and the show was very well-done.

“The audience is so CLOSE to the Stage - it's amazing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

We went along to the Theatre Royal in order to write a review for The Gatekeeper (puppet show) for www.think-tasmania.com. Just wanted to report that the actual theatre is a star venue. The seats are very close to the action - which is great. They have lots of shows on there, and I can't wait to return.
