Seating Plan
Popular Productions
  • Spread over three levels, the auditorium can seat a maximum of 1711 guests - 866 Stalls, 435 Dress Circle and 410 Grand Circle.
  • Each section offers stunning views of the stage but the Stalls, which are divided into blocks, provide the best views.
  • If you’re going for a musical, book seats in the centre of the Dress Circle for the best views and experience.
  • Tickets for either side of the Dress Circle or Upper Circle are cheaper because they offer side views of the show. However, they do not cut off any part of the stage, which is why it’s a good bargain.
  • Box seats are available on every level of the auditorium for those seeking a more private experience.
