We were up in the gods. Wooden bench seats that weren't super comfortable but they were cheaper. It was also a bit too warm and muggy up there. Beautiful stage and theatre.

The Theatre Royal in Hobart is famous and many famous actors have performed here over its lifetime. It is a small intimate theatre with a magnificent chandelier. When visiting Hobart attending a performance here should be one of your must dos.

The Theatre Royal is a stunning, tiny theatre where the audience feels connected to the stage and performers. An amazing place with a great range of performances. Be aware though, that the seats in the gods are bench seats - bring a cushion!

Famously rescued in the 1940s by Sir Laurence Olivier's call for help, this gorgeous little theatre has been totally restored to Victorian red and gold splendour. Call in and ask to have a peek or buy a ticket to a show. Also hosts music events....More

No matter what performance is on and how good it actually turns out to be, I always enjoying visiting the Theatre Royal. As well as being architecturally astounding, the staff members are always polite, friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work!

I recommend Tasman Quartermasters if you want to try something a bit different.(great tapas, craft beers and spirits) Just a couple of blocks stroll away.
