Welcome to The Royalty Theatre, where we have been entertaining Sunderland for the last 90 years.

We pride ourselves on producing high quality theatre, our regular season of 6 plays plus a family pantomime, offers something for everyone to enjoy.

We are always looking to welcome new people to join our teams of actors, directors, technicians and front of house staff, please come along on a Friday evening if you are interested in being involved.


ABIGAIL’S PARTY - Tuesday 2nd December 2014 7:30pm.  Two males and three females of various ages are required.

THE THRILL OF LOVE - Friday 9th January 2015 7:30pm.  Four females and one male, of various ages, are required.

These auditions are open to anyone, no preparation is necessary.  Just turn up on the night.  Please note that generally, only those aged 16 and over will be considered – but directors will sometimes make exceptions if a parent can accompany the actor to rehearsals, but confirm this with the director before the reading begins.


This year we are proud to be part of a city wide initiative Sunderland Stages.
Sunderland Stages celebrates the very best of theatre, dance and spoken word performances and brings them to hidden, found and unexpected venues across the Sunderland.
Between Autumn 2014 and Summer 2015, Sunderland stages will bring performances to a range of venues in the City including The Royalty Theatre, Arts Centre Washington, North Shore and Bonded Warehouse ( both University of Sunderland Students Union venues)

Had an amazing time tonight at Born in the Dark, wonderfully original script written by Lee Stewart with a very strong cast! Olivia Bowern, Lee Stewart, Lorna Breeze and Thomas Potts did an amazing job! Brilliant mix of comedy and emotion, thoroughly enjoyable show! Massive congratulations to everyone involved!!!

Emily Wallace’s ‘A Night at The Ballet’ on Saturday night was terrific. The music, written by Bridie Walker, was a joy. Well done to both of them

Was a real good laugh tonight at A Bolt from the Blue! Funny. I may possibly need a heart transplant… #‎bigloudbang‬
