The Theatre Royal Bath reopened has reopened.
On time and within the budget of £3.65million.

The theatre closed for 3 months of major renovations.
These include a complete remodelling of the entrance and foyer, a new bar in the vaults, named after the late president of the theatre trust, Jeremy Fry, redecoration throughout, cleaning each of the 13,550 crystals on the famous chandelier above the auditorium, and updating seven miles of electrical cables throughout the building.

The opening production is Richard Brinsley Sheridanís 'The Rival's, appropriately set in Bath in 1775, just a few years after the original Theatre Royal opened in Orchard Street.

Sir Peter Hallís production pairs Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles as the inimitable Mrs Malaprop and Sir Anthony Absolute.
They also cut the ribbon to formally announce the reopening of the theatre.
