Sydney’s Theatre Royal Reopening In December

BY ASTON BROWN

Sydney’s iconic Theatre Royal grand re-opening is only weeks away as it confirms its opening season with two critically acclaimed Broadway musicals – Jagged Little Pill and Girl From The North Country.

Operators of the theatre, Trafalgar Entertainment group, are excited to be welcoming back ticket holders on December 2.

“We are thrilled to confirm this major milestone in the reopening of this magnificent venue – to secure two new major new Broadway musicals to launch the venue,” said Sir Howard Panter, Joint CEO of Trafalgar Entertainment Group.

Jagged Little Pill tells the story of a perfectly imperfect family living in 21st century suburbia. It has been nominated for 15 Tony Awards, the most of any show and recently won a Grammy for best Musical Theatre Album.

Written and directed by Conor McPherson, with music and lyrics by Bob Dylan, Girl From The North Country has quickly become one of the most critically acclaimed and multi award-winning productions of the 21st century.

It is the first new international production to be announced for Australia since the government announced the return of live theatre and will premiere on January 5.

Dating back to 1833, The Theatre Royal is the oldest Sydney based theatrical institution. The current theatre was built in 1976 but closed in March 2016.

Sir Howard Panter looks forward to the theatre’s bright future.

We set out from the start to bring the very best of international theatre to the people of Sydney, and this is the beginning of our long-term commitment to first class programming of this exciting new venue.
