This lovely old theatre is worth a visit. There is a great deal of ambience and a lot of good will from the staff and volunteers who work there.

“Great night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

The atmosphere is exciting. Everyone is just there for a good easy going night and to watch a show. I love the idea that there is a bar at the rear and a wine or beer makes it all that more enjoyable. A good well behaved crowd. It is excellent to sit up in the balcony area. What a pleasurable experience. Thank you.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Seen many musicals here and it is just such a great theatre.......never seen the ghost though;-)but the atmosphere, accoustics, and overall feeling of the theatre makes it a great place to even just take a visit, and enjoy the show.....

“Living history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

It seems that the Theatre Royal has always existed. It is a major part of Hobart's history. The theatre always has a full program both local, like the bawdy Uni Review or International opera stars and everything in between. The experience is not expensive and because of the intimacy of the theatre, not a word or movement will be missed, that is, as long as you are not behind a pillar.
