Newest Review: ... as my 18 month old grandson. However I was so disappointed with the performance today. I felt that the tickets were not worth the money and even though the children quite enjoyed the day out I was not at all impressed. The actors were reasonadly good but the costumes very poor apart from the Gruffalo's. I couldn't appreciate the roles of the owl or the snake or even the fox. I think that ... more

The Gruffalo Theatre Royal Newcastle. I was really looking forward to seeing the Gruffalo, a real favourite with my class of 6-7 year olds as well as my 18 month old grandson. However I was so disappointed with the performance today. I felt that the tickets were not worth the money and even though the children quite enjoyed the day out I was not at all impressed. The actors were reasonadly good but the costumes very poor apart from the Gruffalo's. I couldn't appreciate the roles of the owl or the snake or even the fox. I think that children who love the Gruffalo would expect more traditional interpretations of these characters and not the more obscure ... Read the complete review

The Theatre Royal is the big theatre in Newcastle (although there are several others) and it's interior is vey impressive indeed. The theatre holds a lot of people across all the typical areas, stalls, circles etc. and no matter where you are in the theatre you will get a good view. You will also find yourself on a very comfy seat wherever you are and the seats are a stunning red colour. In the foyer, things are no different and the whole area looks incredible which is great because the second you walk in you are immediately ready for whatever quality play is about to be shown. This leads onto the fact that this theatre pulls in very big acts, ... Read the complete review

The Theatre Royal in Newcastle, in the largest performance theatre in the city, and along it cnat hold some other largest musicals, it does have some brilliant shows. During the winter period, there is a lot of tradional shows on, such as Pantomines, and they star such big names in entertainment. A running feature of this theatre is that the shows that they do perform star famous people from the north east. It can hold about one and a half thousand people on four tiers of seating. The bottom and middle levels usually cost the most when it costs to tickets, and the top are the cheapest, however, from the highest level, the view can be a bit contricted as there ...

Newcastle's Theatre Royal is a stunning Grade I listed building, and one of the most historic cultural landmarks in the country. The theatre opened in February 1837 (replacing the old Theatre Royal) but was destroyed by fire in 1899 (after a performance of Macbeth!) The main structure of the building fortunately remained intact, and the theatre reopened in December 1901 to once more dominate the heart of Newcastle's Grainger Town. In its 170 year history the Theatre Royal has played host to some of the biggest names in show-business, presenting over 380 performances to over 300,000 people each year. The theatre is the regional home of the Royal ... Read the complete review

Theatre Royal Situated in the centre of Newcastle, the Theatre Royal is one of those landmark buildings in the city… great for helping people find their way if you direct them from the theatre. Having spent many evenings at a range of productions, from Shakespeare to The Gruffalo, I have fond memories of this quite magnificent building. ~~Address and other contact~~ 100 Grey Street Newcastle upon Tyne.
