Welcome to The Royalty Theatre, one of the North East's oldest Community Theatre groups. Providing a professional standard of Theatre and Entertainment to the City of Sunderland for over 90 years.


Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Tuesday 21/06 performance of Dirty Dusting has unfortunately been cancelled. The rest of the performances will take place as scheduled.

Any audience members who had booked for the Tuesday will be contacted to rearrange their booking.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

From Thursday January 27th, it is no longer mandatory to wear a face covering in public venues. However, The Royalty Theatre still holds maintaining the health and wellbeing of our casts, staff, and audience members of high importance. We would therefore ask that audience members wear a face covering, where possible, throughout their time within the theatre. We also advise continued use of hand sanitisation stations which are situated throughout the premises, signing in using the NHS QR code, and ask that any instructions given by RT Staff are followed.

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 and are booked to see a performance, please do not attend the theatre. Please contact [email protected] and explain that you are unable to attend and we will be happy to help.

Thank you for your co-operation.
