We thoroughly enjoyed the BBC One Documentary, ‘On Stage: A Tale of Two Theatres’ on Monday 9th November.

The half-hour special documentary talked about the health of regional theatres and featured notable actors including  Sheila Hancock, Sir Antony Sher and Alison Steadman.

The programme saw Shelia Hancock reminisce on her fond memories of both New Theatre Royal and The Kings Theatre where she began her career in the 1950s after training at Rada.

As well as this viewers also got a chance to see behind-the-scenes footage of our reopening last month, when we invited the Topical TV team here to document the journey of our restoration.
