THE NEXT PLAY READING - Thursday 17th April 7.30pm, for Up Pompeii! by Miles Tredinnick - the play version of the classic comedy.  It is to be performed from June 23rd to 28th on our main stage.  We require the following people:

- 6 main male characters, aged 20 to 50.

- 4 main female characters, two in their 20s and two 40s or older.

- A number of extras, either gender - this is therefore ideal if you might only fancy a small part.

All are welcome at our play readings, regardless of experience.  No preparation is required.  You are welcome to come along even if you're not interested in a part, for instance if you wish to be involved behind the scenes, or if you simply want to hone your reading/audition skills.

Christmas and New Year Party

Save the Date! The Royalty Theatre's Christmas and New Year party will be on the evening of Saturday December 28. We'll have our bar open for a disco, games, some festive food and one or two other surprises. More information to follow soon; watch this space.

A live theatre production is one of the most pleasurable and memorable experiences available, giving a sense of vibrancy and quality that you won't get from TV or the cinema. Here at the Royalty you can enjoy an evening of excellent live entertainment in a friendly, intimate atmosphere. In fact, it's more than just a show; it's a great night out.


We are delighted to have David Parfitt, award-winning film producer and current chairman of BAFTA, as our theatre patron.

Our theatre boasts comfortable seating as well as a fully stocked bar. For those not travelling by car we are situated close to the city centre and only a few minutes' walk from the University Metro Station.
