If you haven 't already booked your ticket to see this show do so now as it ends on Saturday. It is a first class and most enjoyable show with a cast that is certainly West End quality and who appear to enjoy themselves as much as their audience did. The costumes, music and overall production leaves you wanting more... More

This show was absolutely brilliant. What a talent John partridge is. The rest of the cast were all exceptional too, making for a stand out - and stand up at the end - performance. The only shame was that the cast were playing to a half empty house, which must have been a disappointment to them. It was a matinee,... More

Saw Le Cage aux Folles on its opening night at this venue and what a fun filled evening it turned out to be. Have to say they really delivered and put on a fantastic show, was a bit worried after reading reviews of the tour saying there were problems with the costumes, set and other things, but aside from a...

This pantomime lacked entertainment, no good dance routines or singers. It felt like it had been done on the cheap. Same old routines from Ricardo Gauntlet. Although I have enjoyed his pantomimes over the last considerable number of years, I think it's time for a change. This was the worst pantomime I've seen at Norwich Theatre Royal

Wow, this is the second time of seeing the pantomime, we really enjoyed last years Snow White and this years Jack and the beanstalk was just as good. We came to the Autistic showing as my son is Autistic and he loved it, he was transfixed all the way through. It was lovely seeing him happy and laughing. The costumes... More

Great show with Miles Jupp the comedian! Nice to see a full theatre and a superb show. I hope he returns in the future.

Good show, good songs, good singers. Various songs from popular musicals. Show ends with numbers from La Miss. Worth seeing. A friend of mine sees the show every year, but I would not go to that extreme.

My Husband booked tickets by email, not knowing the real layout of this theatre, he has a severe heart condition, stairs & slopes being a problem. We arrived & we were shown to our seats, there was no way my husband could get to them as they were high & too many steps. A lovely young lady came & sorted... More

Visited with my husband, in laws and 3 year old for Jack and the Beanstalk matinee performance, sitting Circle, row C 3 seats in from the end. We had been two previous years and thoroughly enjoyed our visits and whilst we did enjoy the panto again this year felt 2016's show had been better. I wasn't keen on the Fairy... More
