Attended production of last month Coriolanus. Renovations to the entrance were a definite improvement and aesthetically pleasing. The play was amazing and the stage management and production were phenomenal. This theatre does extremely well for its patrons.

Attended the RHPS at the Avon Theatre. Excellent facility, clean and easy to get around. Many bars, bathrooms and guides to escort us to our seats. The show was fantastic.

Sitting at the very back is really a bit difficult on the acoustic, and during our Friday soirée of Napoli Millionaria we had a pretty annoying usher harping on us
