The Theatre Royal is a classical Victorian Theatre with a Proscenium stage and 3 seating levels. Spanning a history of some 220 years in its original form as a “play house”, it’s often referred to as “the People’s Theatre”. For generations it has been the focal point of theatre in Waterford with world premieres and visits by such authors as Oscar Wilde. Today the auditorium is a modern 430 seat theatre over three seating levels with its iconic chandelier making for an awesome sight. From music to drama, opera to musicals, the Theatre Royal continues to be at the heart of theatre in Waterford.
