A wonderful theatre , still has an element of grandeur in its decor. Our Viist was to see Dick Whittington Panto starring Elaine C Smith, Jordon Young and Alan McHugh, a fabulous team who did a stellar performance, Only small criticism is cafe area is too small and bar area needs a facelift. All staff we met provided excellent service.

Visited here with the mrs for our annual jaunt to the panto. Fantastic place with great staff more than willing to help at any occasion. The theatre itself was clean and comfortable to be in. Entertainmentwise the panto at Aberdeen is and always has been first class. Well written, structured and executed! They manage to work in enough jokes and... More

The show was fine , the theatre is great with all you could ask for , we all need to use... More

Went to see a show last week and as usual it is always a pleasure coming here. A beautiful but not too big theatre with 4 levels of viewing areas and 4 box areas. Also a restaurant and cafe. If your ever in Aberdeen then I recommend a visit too HMT and they have lots of variety of shows/events to... More

We visited this theatre as part of a touring production - it was a very pleasant theatre with incredible lighting. A friend and I originally were sat further back, but as the show had some spare seats, the staff members let us move forward to see the show better - very grateful for this as it made us appreciate it...

We chose the matinee and had soup and sandwiches in the cafe which was lovely on a cool Aberdeen afternoon.We chose the dress circle seats which gave us the best views I felt of the whole stage.A good day out for...

It's a lovely theatre with excellent views and acoustics. I saw The Kinks musical "Sunny Afternoon" and it worked wonderfully well. You can see and hear everything perfectly. There is also subtitling which is easy to see. There is a bar and restaurant next door as a modern addition to the 1906 theatre. There is also a reasonably sized bar... More

This place has lots of history. Have been to over 5 performances here and the sound, lights and atmosphere is out of this world. However there are two small but yet important issues. (1) The seats are very small and steep. (2) It's very stuffy half way through all the shows and I always see people with health issues or... More
