Richmond Theatre welcomes about a quarter of a million theatregoers to over 40 productions annually, performing for about 49 weeks in each year. Sometimes productions are on for a week at a time, sometimes just one night.
The theatre, on The Green, Richmond, Surrey. TW9 1QJ, was built in 1899 as the Theatre Royal and Opera House and was beautifully refurbished in 1991 to the original design of theatre architect Frank Matcham, who also designed the London Coliseum, the London Palladium and the Hackney Empire. Richmond Theatre is one of the most beautiful of all the Frank Matcham theatres. It is now operated and managed by The Ambassador Theatre Group Ltd.
Established as one of the most successful theatres in the country, Richmond Theatre presents a wide range of quality drama, musicals, opera, dance and family entertainment each year. The theatre also attract up to 400 young people to education events, workshops and summer school activities each year. Richmond Theatre acts as a venue for local arts organisations and charities to meet, perform and enjoy the theatre.
