The company playing at this venue were kind enough to allow MS Aberdeen to take a collection for our charity from the exiting audience. The theatre staff were very helpful throughout. We were given free seats for the show, which was a musical, excellently done. I can especially recommend the choreography. And audience were most generous in donating. There is... More

Everything went well except when we tried to take our seats - row A seats 6 & 7 in the balcony. Both my wife and I have mobility problems and use walking sticks and although there was a lift only part of... More

I've visited HMT quite a few times now and each time has been wonderful, be it ballet, opera, or a musical theatre. It never takes long to find your seats, and they're actually quite comfy. The view is unobstructed no matter where you sit. The theatre itself is beautiful, wonderful architecture, and acoustics to match. If you're planning to visit... More

Good acoustics and all seats have a good view of the stage. Good toilet facilities and lift access to parts. Stages some great and top shows and usually always well supported. Has bar facilities and also a restaurant with a reasonable range of food. We go to shows there quite often.

We went to see Jackie the musical and it was fantastic. It had a great cast with quite a few famous faces. It had us up on our feet dancing and singing

Lovely building and excellent show this afternoon. The Jackie musical was amazing. Every time I go to this theatre the shows are spectacular with very professional cast. We always have a great time. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit when in Aberdeen.

Main theatre in Aberdeen. Centrally located it is accessible by public transport. Parking can be found nearby. Can be relatively pricey God tickets and tends to be the theatre in Aberdeen that draws the big touring shows. Lively ornate theatre inside and staff are helpful. Lack of female toilets can make the intervals a rush.

Everything about His Majesty's Theatre is perfect - everything except for the narrow small seats and the warm temperature in the building once everyone fills in and the show gets going. The temperature in the theatre isn't so bad that you can't tolerate it - just wear lots of layers so that its comfortable for you. If you have legs... More

I remember when I used to go here to see the Christmas pantos when I was a kid. It hasn't changed and for me it still seems like a magical place. The seats seem a bit smaller...ah ok that's just me...oops!! But the staff are really nice and friendly and helpful and it's just a beautiful old theatre with LOTS... More
