Bath has three theatres. The largest and most famous is the Theatre Royal, opened in 1805 and steeped in history. Popular with actors as both a pre and post West End venue, Bath is able to host many of the best productions of the moment.
The Ustinov Studio is the little sister of the Theatre Royal, tucked away on Monmouth Street. It is here that ‘alternative’ theatre finds its voice, with a packed programme of experimental and often daring theatre and dance.
The Rondo Theatre is not far from the city centre in Larkhall. It hosts amateur as well as professional productions and is a firm favourite as part of the Fringe Festival every year.
There are a number of theatres within striking distance of Bath including the Bristol Hippodrome, Bristol Old Vic, the QEH in Bristol and the Merlin Theatre in Frome.
