It consists of a 1,300-seat main auditorium, The Lyric, which regularly hosts large-scale musicals, opera and ballet; a 200-seat studio, The Drum; and a 50-seat studio, The Lab. On a separate site, Theatre Royal Plymouth also has a production and learning centre, TR2, featuring rehearsal studios and workshops for the production of set and costumes.
The theatre is a National Portfolio Organisation, receiving regular funding from Arts Council England.
A £7 million Regeneration Project was completed in September 2013 with a renovated front of house area and community performance space called The Lab.
May 5th 2012 saw the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Theatre Royal. To celebrate this milestone in the theatre’s history we put together a timeline of some of the highlights from these three decades which we hope you’ll enjoy remembering.
HRH Princess Margaret opened the Theatre Royal in 1982. Royal Charity Gala held with Leonard Rossiter, Dickie Henderson & Gene Pitney performing. Jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald also performed that year.
