Opened in 1837, Hobart’s Theatre Royal has been the home of contemporary theatre in Tasmania for more than 185 years and is Australia’s oldest working theatre. This 700-seat heritage treasure occupies an important place in the hearts of Tasmanians and many visitors to Hobart. Since 2020, the Theatre Royal has also occupied the Hedberg, a new state-of-the-art facility shared with the University of Tasmania. Three levels of foyers and bars, and a new 285-seat Studio Theatre, have provided many new opportunities for audiences. Every year, the Theatre Royal curates an annual season of contemporary performance and events, which aim to present high calibre experiences that our audiences would not otherwise have the opportunity to see.
