Welcome to Theatre Royal Plymouth

Watch, Take Part, and Experience

Dear friends of TRP

We hope you are all keeping safe and well.

As you will no doubt appreciate, the ongoing situation with Coronovirus has had a considerable impact on both the scale and location of our Box Office. Our team are working exceptionally hard, under very difficult circumstances, to contact patrons regarding show cancellations and postponements. We are looking for solutions to help speed this process up but need you to bear with us.

Please, do not call our Box Office.

If you haven’t heard from us yet, please do not worry. You will not lose out; we will get to you. All refunds for cancelled shows will be honoured.

We ask for your continued patience and understanding.

Our artistic team are also working with colleagues all over the country to confirm our future programme. Below is an update of the changes we have been able to confirm so far:

The planned April on-sale for The Phantom Of The Opera has been temporarily postponed.

New on-sale dates will be announced soon.

The following performances have been postponed:

Derren Brown: Showman
Ross Noble: Humournoid
Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Spring visit
Breakin’ Convention
This Land

Dates to be announced soon

The Best of That’ll Be The Day

Due to take place on Sun 10 May, will now be taking place on
Sun 28 June 2020

Please hold on to your tickets as they will be automatically transferred to the new dates.

Once the new dates are confirmed we will be in contact with you as soon as possible.

The following shows have been cancelled:

Please do not contact the Box Office. They will call you, but this may take time.

Our patrons have been amazingly supportive and the TRP team would like to say a collective ‘thank you’ for your on-going patience and understanding.

Stay safe, stay home and see you soon.

Should you be unable to make the new dates of rescheduled shows you will be entitled to a refund or TRP Gift Card (valid for 2yrs) for the purchase price of each ticket.

Should you wish to claim your refund or Gift Card now please email us at boxoffice@theatreroyal.com with a contact telephone number and one of our team members will be in touch.

For those shows that have been cancelled we are in the process of contacting all affected patrons directly to arrange a refund or Gift Card.

Please bear with us. We are calling as many people as we can every day. Please, do not call our Box Office.

Keep Theatre Going


We need your help. We have closed our doors to the public for the first time in our 37 years.

Customers like you have been so compassionate and sent incredibly kind words of support for our staff and the artists we work with. Many of you have offered to donate some or all of their ticket refunds to us so we can keep going through this tough period.

Since the first announcement that the theatre would have to close we’ve been supporting our staff, including casual workers, freelance artists and practitioners

We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone, but if you can please make a donation to TRP today, we’ll be here for you once this is over.

Please donate to support TRP today.
