5 reviews of Theatre Royal in English
Wonderfully located for an “out-of-towner” like myself, this has remained an impressive venue due to the local support. I like the location as it is a few minutes walk from the railway station, less than a minute from the bus station and very close to a number of relatively cheap car parks.
It features a good variety of shows - recently, Queen tribute, classical music and pantomime. This is what a local theatre should be doing plus, very occasionally, a “big name” (therefore expensive) act.
The seating is quite adequate without being too comfortable ( I have fallen asleep in some places and missed the show!) and the provision of refreshments good. I would, however, agree with the other review which suggests watching out for the “hard sell” things for kids.
Always a variety a different shows to suit all ages.
You can purchase tickets on line through ticketmaster or you can even phone the theatre and pick them up separately.
If your going to watch a children show do beware, as at the doors there is always a variety of children lights and what nots that they are trying to sell saying to the children i bet you would like one.
If you want some snacks in the interval you can purchase them here and they are very cheap.
The seats are quite comfortable.
Our beautiful theatre was Lady Pilkingtons passion before she died, she raised thousands of pounds to keep it open for the residents of St Helens. We have some wonderful shows on during the course of a year and some great acts. The ballet has just finnished, swan lake, the driffters have just been on and this year panto is Aladdin starring Richard de vere and Schnorbitz. Shawaddywaddy are regulars and Freddie Starr who is a local and Billy Pearce (chase me) Its only a small theatre but it’s being kept alive by local support, great family night out.
