Went to see the ballet and all credit to the theatre for been able to draw such a good Russian company . Helpful and polite staff guided us to our seats about 6 rows from the stage in the main stalls. We had , lots of legroom, and were close enough to see all the facial gestures of the dancers... More

My wife and I regularly attend the Theatre Royal - recently saw Swan Lake ballet and Stewart Lee. The theatre itself is great, but the bar areas could use a but of TLC. The main issue we had on our recent visit is that all the smokers pile outside at half-time and stand right by open doors so all their... More

If you haven 't already booked your ticket to see this show do so now as it ends on Saturday. It is a first class and most enjoyable show with a cast that is certainly West End quality and who appear to enjoy themselves as much as their audience did. The costumes, music and overall production leaves you wanting more... More

This show was absolutely brilliant. What a talent John partridge is. The rest of the cast were all exceptional too, making for a stand out - and stand up at the end - performance. The only shame was that the cast were playing to a half empty house, which must have been a disappointment to them. It was a matinee,... More

Saw Le Cage aux Folles on its opening night at this venue and what a fun filled evening it turned out to be. Have to say they really delivered and put on a fantastic show, was a bit worried after reading reviews of the tour saying there were problems with the costumes, set and other things, but aside from a...

This pantomime lacked entertainment, no good dance routines or singers. It felt like it had been done on the cheap. Same old routines from Ricardo Gauntlet. Although I have enjoyed his pantomimes over the last considerable number of years, I think it's time for a change. This was the worst pantomime I've seen at Norwich Theatre Royal
