GO Theatre In Plymouth

Theatre in Plymouth After a hard days sightseeing, it’s time to sit back, put your feet up and be entertained at one of Plymouth’s top theatre venues.

The city’s main theatre is the distinctly modern Theatre Royal [map] on Royal Parade, which is reputedly one of the best in the UK and plays host to large mainstream events. Among the delights you can see here are touring West End musicals, and performances by the likes of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Glyndebourne Touring Opera and the Birmingham Royal Ballet.

Fringe performances are catered for in the smaller Drum Theatre next door, which in the past has staged cult plays, poetry readings and children’s theatre productions.

Although it’s very small, the Barbican Theatre [map] on Castle Street is undoubtedly one of the city’s most popular venues for entertainment. This theatre plays host to national drama, dance, comedy and concerts, while it also works extensively with local youngsters to create community-based shows including the annual pantomime.

For more national treasures head to Plymouth Pavilion [map] on Millbay Road, a large venue with a 3,000 capacity concert hall that stages music, sport and drama.

Alternatively, if you want to see amateur productions get along to the Athenaeum [map] on Derry's Cross, a small theatre that is home to many of Plymouth's major amateur operatic and dramatic companies, including the Western College Players and the Tamaritans. Despite their amateur status, these companies put on some high quality performances and the theatre usually gets very busy indeed.
