Theatre Royal Plymouth to stage new production 40 Extraordinary Years, a celebration of theatre and thanks for their 40th anniversary

13 September 2022

Did you know that Theatre Royal Plymouth turns 40 this year? To mark the anniversary, TRP are producing an exclusive show, 40 Extraordinary Years. This very special on-stage show will be staged in the Lyric auditorium this week, from 14 – 17 September.

Tickets are on sale now to the general public across all performances, but tickets are selling quickly with some performances already sold out. Tickets for 40 Extraordinary Years are on sale now.

TRP’s Chief Executive, James Mackenzie-Blackman, said: “This week we press ahead with celebrating 40 years of TRP. We have assembled an extraordinary team of artists to recognise the contribution we have played in the city and the region for the last four decades. During this period the charity has experienced good times, celebratory times and more challenging times – a little like the week we are in. TRP has though, always risen and always done all it can to bring people together to foster happiness and raise a smile. As we mark this momentous week, we look forward to the next 40 years.”

In a transformed Lyric Theatre, the show will help to look back at some of the most memorable moments of the last four decades.

With a surprise line-up of leading local and UK theatre talent, 40 Extraordinary Years will celebrate theatre, dance, musicals and plays in a unique event never seen before on TRP’s stage and it is never to be repeated, so you definitely do not want to miss this!

Sian Weeding, Events Producer, said: “I’m so excited that we get to celebrate Theatre Royal Plymouth in 40 Extraordinary Years – this incredible powerhouse of the South West. We’re going to give the communities we serve an unforgettable experience and show them the theatre from a whole new perspective…I can’t wait to see their faces!

Following a series of special, intimate and immersive performances, the TRP Bar on the top floor will be open for any audience members who wish to stay and treat themselves to something post show, to raise a glass to Theatre Royal Plymouth, and the amazing contribution the theatre plays in Plymouth and the rest of the region.
