Theatre Royal Nelson

After 10 years of fundraising and 5 years of rebuilding The Theatre Royal re-opened on May 31, 2010 offering the people of Nelson and the Tasman region a fully restored heritage auditorium alongside 21st century staging and front of house facilities.

The oldest wooden theatre in the Southern Hemisphere has undergone a stunning restoration.  The theatre has an all new enlarged flat stage area, a fully counterweighted flying system, new lighting and sound control systems, new dressing rooms, laundry and kitchen facilities.  The public will enjoy the 350 new seats in a climate controlled beautifully restored auditorium and enjoy the comfort of our foyer and bar.
