Pre-show at His Majesty's Theatre

His Majesty’s Theatre is one of only two so named in the world.  It’s an opulent, awe-inspiring Frank Matcham designed theatre, a national treasure, with a breathtaking auditorium described by Billy Connolly as “like playing a gig inside a wedding cake!” 

On stage at HMT we bring Broadway and the West End to the North-east with award winning musical theatre - Wicked, Jersey Boys, Dirty Dancing, internationally renowned contemporary dance - Mark Morris Dance Group, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, Jasmin Vardimon, acclaimed stage plays like the National’s One Man Two Guvnors and To Kill a Mocking Bird, direct from the West End. It’s the perfect family night out with shows like Shrek, Sing-A-Long-A-Frozen, Slava’s Snow Show and our legendary Panto.  And we are proud to be Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera’s home in the North-east.

  • HMT has a total capacity of 1,491 across four levels.
  • We have bespoke rehearsal studio space.
  • We have our own restaurant 1906 where you can enjoy lunch or a pre-theatre supper.
  • Over the years HMT has seen performances from luminaries such as Charlton Heston, Sir Ian McKellan, Sean Connery, Erroll Flynn, Noel Coward, Alec Guinness, Vivien Leigh and rock legend Brian May.
  • The theatre has its own resident ghost.  Jake is thought to roam the corridors of the theatre and was said to be a stage hand that died in an accident in the backstage area.
