What’s On

OUR 2021/22 SEASON



Directed by Billy Towers

It is Victorian London and strange events are happening in the Manningham household. Letters go missing, there are inexplicable footsteps from upstairs, and why has that picture on the wall been moved?

Is Mrs Manningham losing her mind or is there something more sinister afoot? And why is Inspector Rough so obsessed with a ten-year-old crime that occurred in the house?

The Royalty Theatre is proud to present this classic play by Patrick Hamilton.


(In order of first appearing, L to R) Mik Richardson, Emma Thompson, Louise Hall and Lee Wilkins in rehearsal for Gaslight.

Agatha Christie's The Stranger - October 25th-30th Directed by Billy Towers

From the pen of Agatha Christie, the Queen of Crime.

London at the height of the swinging Sixties. Enid is engaged to Richard, a likeable young man, but she finds herself drawn to the darkly charismatic Gerald Strange. She finds herself increasingly attracted to the charming Gerald, but is he hiding a dark secret? And is he the only person with something to hide?

Beauty and the Beast by Helen Bowie - December 3rd-19th Directed by Helen Bowie

A tale as old as time itself comes to the Royalty, as beautiful Isabelle sacrifices herself to save her father from the clutches of the mysterious "Beast". Joined by her friends Jacques and Madame Marmite, can Isabelle do what is necessary to break the Sorceress' spell before the walk-down song?

Please note, this panto contains some mild peril, which very young viewers may not enjoy.

Audacity by Simon Mawdsley - February 14th-19th Directed by Michael Fletcher and Caroline Chapman

He needs help, however, so he enlists John, an ex-stationery salesman sacked for fiddling his expenses, and Dave, another salesman with a hugely expensive lifestyle, as his partners in crime.
