There are two distinctive performance spaces; The Lyric and The Drum, and a new workshop and performance space, The Lab, will open in October 2013.The range of work presented and produced is incredibly extensive, including regular collaborations with leading theatre companies in the UK and beyond. The programme includes major touring drama, musical productions, leading opera and dance. The Theatre Royal Plymouth also produces and presents new plays and has built a national reputation for the quality of its programme and innovative work in The Drum, winning the prestigious Peter Brook award. New musicals and larger scale drama are co-produced for The Lyric, often with commercial or subsidised partners and many productions tour nationally or transfer to the West End.

Centre upper circle seats so great view. very accomplished show from all the actor / singers. Some blow away numbers, some laughs and a few tears. Evocative memories and exceptional talent on show.

We went to see the spirit of the dance show. Great show as we had front row seats. Car park right behind the venue. Drinks are resumable priced and can even pre order drinks for the break.

We always go for the front row. It’s not so good for opera where the subtitles are right above you, but otherwise it’s great. You run the risk of being called up on stage though!
