Owner description: The Theatre Royal Plymouth is the largest and best attended regional producing theatre in the UK and the leading promoter of theatre in the South West. There are two distinctive performance spaces; The Lyric and The Drum, and a new workshop and performance space, The Lab, will open in October 2013.The range of work presented and produced is incredibly extensive, including regular collaborations with leading theatre companies in the UK and beyond. The programme includes major touring drama, musical productions, leading opera and dance. The Theatre Royal Plymouth also produces and presents new plays and has built a national reputation for the quality of its programme and innovative work in The Drum, winning the prestigious Peter Brook award. New musicals and larger scale drama are co-produced for The Lyric, often with commercial or subsidised partners and many productions tour nationally or transfer to the West End. The Theatre Royal Plymouth provides an exceptional Creative Learning programme with a focus on engaging young and disadvantaged communities. The award-winning theatre production and learning centre, TR2, contains unrivalled set, costume, prop-making and rehearsal facilities.

We are so lucky to have the Theatre Royal in Plymouth. It is a comfortable theatre and has many facilities. The Theatre is fortunate to get the very best coming to Plymouth. Ballet particularly is favoured with the likes of Matthew Bourne premiering several of his ballets at the Theatre Royal as it has an excellent rehearsal venue. There is also the opportunity to see many experimental and innovative productions in the Drum theatre which is part of the Theatre Royal. A smaller more intimate performance space.

My Mum and I went to see Propeller do Henry 5th and they were so good that we're going again when they come back in Feb. I'm disabled and the theatre staff were really helpful in taking away my wheelchair once I'd transferred into my seat and bringing it back again at the end. We had really good seats that were on the endand had no seats in front so I could stretch out my legs. The view was really amazing and very happy with the price. Looking forward to next time!

Excellent theatre, great view from most seats, excellent choice at the bar (although drinks are rather expensive) and good toilet facilities.
