The Grade I Listed Newcastle Theatre Royal is both neo-classical monument and cultural engine, with an annual audience of 400,000 and over 400 performances each year. An independent charity, it presents the finest drama, the brightest West End musicals, the cream of the comedy circuit, award winning ballet and dance, family friendly shows, sensational opera – and probably the best Pantomime in the country. Over the centuries, many of the great names of the English stage have played at the Royal, from Keane to Irving, Olivier to Dench and the Hollywood greats Orson Welles, Charlton Heston and Jack Lemmon have also trodden the famous boards; Sir Ian McKellen has described the Theatre Royal as his favourite theatre.
