The Theatre Royal has been the home of Hobart theatre since it opened its doors in 1837. In its life it has endured a changing city landscape, escaped demolition several times and even come back after a significant fire. It has played home to countless performances and even a resident ghost!
The future of the theatre is just as exciting and interesting and we wanted to share some of what is to come with our followers.
‘The Theatre Royal belongs to the people, to us all’, says the CEO of the Theatre Royal, Tim Munro, as he describes the new spaces.
Tim took the Hello Hobart team on a fabulous tour of the new Hedberg performing arts centre, which includes a new box office, expanded bars, cloakroom, upgraded and accessible amenities and will also house the UTAS Conservatorium of Music.
