Originally built in 1837, the Theatre Royal is the oldest working theatre in Australia.
Not only an iconic piece of Tasmania’s history the Theatre Royal is a living home for the performing arts. On this stage we are proud to present an annual performing arts program that encompasses traditional and contemporary art forms. This intimate 700 seat theatre has hosted performers such as Sir Laurence Olivier, Noël Coward, Vivien Leigh and Marcel Marceau - and continues to support the next generation of Tasmanian artistic talent.
The newly opened Studio Theatre within The Hedberg , is a state of the art venue suitable for a variety of performance formats. This contemporary performance space can seat up to 300 audience members and the intimacy of the theatre supports the story tellers and artists presenting in the theatre.
