About the Richmond Theatre
Located in one of London’s suburban neighbourhoods, Richmond Theatre first opened on September 18th 1899 with a production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It. It was refurbished and expanded in the 1990’s, and still features its original beautiful red and gold interior. Currently run by ATG, the venue boasts 840 in an intimate, comfortable auditorium. Richmond Theatre hosts a variety of national touring productions, including music, dance and comedy, as well as hosting amateur dramatics groups in residence.
The theatre is built across three levels; the Stalls, Dress Circle and Upper Circle, including Slips in the Upper Circle and four boxes at Dress Circle level. Standing spaces are also available at the rear of the Dress Circle. The Stalls is the largest seating area of the theatre, comprising about half of the audience, whilst the two circles seat approximately a quarter of the audience each. Views are generally good across the theatre, with the venue’s Victorian design being one of its best features.
