His Majesty's Theatre

Toggle location map

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.
