Until 21 June we are operating socially distanced bubble seating in the theatre.
To book a seat you must select ALL seats within that bubble.
If you get an error message it means you haven't booked ALL the seats in that bubble.
If there are no bubbles left of the size that you want please email telling us the number of seats you want and we can add you to a waiting list.
Thanks for your understanding.


A Sad Day Indeed

It is with much sadness that we share the news of the untimely passing of our dear colleague and friend Karen Simpson.

Karen announced in November 2019 that she would be stepping down from her role as CEO and Artistic Director after six and a half years in post following an incurable cancer diagnosis.  Her health declined more rapidly than expected and she passed away peacefully on Saturday 4th January surrounded by her family.

Karen leaves her husband, Tony Kelly, and daughters Sammy, Katie and Jenny.

Roger Quince, Chairman of Theatre Royal Board: “This is indeed an extremely sad day for myself, Adrian Grady and all staff, volunteers and cast at Theatre Royal. Karen will be sorely missed as both a colleague and a friend. Our deepest sympathy and thoughts are with Tony and the girls.”

Adrian Grady will continue as General Manager and Interim CEO and Marcus Romer will continue as Acting Artistic Director.
