Description:

In 1834 a consortium of Hobart Town’s business leaders was formed with the aim of establishing a permanent theatre for the rapidly expanding colony.The theatre was designed by Peter Degraves, founder of Cascade, Australia’s oldest brewery, and has walls of convict-carved stone.Built among the public houses, brothels, factories and tiny workers’ cottages of Wapping, the theatre opened in 1837.Dubbed by Noel Coward “a dream of a theatre”, the Theatre Royal is Australia’s oldest working theatre and one of its most beautiful treasures.Opening hours are 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 1pm on Saturdays.Theatre Royal Box Office29 Campbell St HobartP +61 3 6233 2299 (or freecall outside of Hobart 1800 650 277)F +61 3 6233 5132E boxoffice@theatreroyal.com.auGeneral EnquiriesP +61 3 6233 2026F +61 3 6233 2129E margaret@theatreroyal.com.au
