Venue overview

The King’s Theatre Glasgow has played host to several top UK shows, including Avenue Q, Dirty Dancing and The Rocky Horror Show. Opening in 1904, the building was heralded as one of the most brilliant theatre designs from prolific architect Frank Matcham. It continues to house annual Christmas pantomimes, over the years featuring Scottish greats such as Stanley Baxter, Jimmy Logan, Rikki Fulton, Jack Milroy, Elaine C Smith and Gerard Kelly. Dave Willis’ record run of 31 weeks at the King’s Theatre remains unbroken in variety history. The King’s Theatre also supports Glasgow’s flourishing amateur theatre groups, packing in appreciative audiences throughout the year.

In 2002, ATG took over the management of the King’s Theatre, upholding the presentation of first-class musicals, pantomime, dance and drama. A traditional building that is recognised as one of the country’s top touring venues, the auditorium holds an impressive seating capacity of 1,785. Composed of four levels, the theatre is built across the Stalls, Grand Circle, Upper Circle and Gallery, all of which offer varying views of the stage.

Good value seats

Depending on the production, tickets are usually not West End prices. The Stalls and front of the Grand Circle offer the best views of the stage, with seats towards the ends of these rows coming without the premium price tag. Seats in the Upper Circle may feel distant from the stage, but views are largely unobstructed and are typically less money. Several value pages are available, which can include pre-ordered interval drinks.

Premium seats

Premium seats are located in the Stalls and in the front sections of the Grand and Upper Circles. Sitting front-centre of the Stalls ensures the best view of the stage, whilst sitting in the front of the Grand Circle is best for large-scale musicals.

The best thing about these seats is the incredible leg room, the whole of the front row has so much space between the seats and the orchestra pit, makes the experience more comfortable. The view is great from these seats as well. You can't see the floor... More

The view from the Upper circle in the King's Theatre is brilliant, hard to find a bad seat there. The seats aren't the comfiest and if you were tall, you might have a problem with the legroom but other than that, I think this is a great seat! More

Probably one of the furthest back (if not the furthest back) rows you can sit in before the dress circle overhang begins to cut off your view. Noticeably quite far back, but a good view of the entire stage, however you do obviously miss the odd facial... More
