The Theatre Royal is an art-deco theatre in Norwich, Norfolk, England. It hosts a large range of touring productions. The theatre had a £10m refurbishment in 2007, designed by Tim Foster Architects.


A traditional family pantomime is produced in-house annually for the Christmas season each year. In addition, it regularly attracts a host of touring theatre productions.


The second Theatre Royal (previous to the building pictured) was built in 1826.[1] The popular magician Ching Lau Lauro received his only bad review there, from the Norfolk Chronicle, in 1828.[2]
