The Theatre Royal is a historic theater in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. The Theatre Royal is one of only 9 Grade I listed theater halls in England. It first opened its doors in February 1837 on Newcastle’s Grey Street. It underwent a large renovation after a fire following a showing of Macbeth in 1899.
