Royal George Theatre
The Shaw Festival presents plays in four distinctive theatres: the Festival Theatre – The Shaw’s flagship theatre, the historic Court House Theatre where The Shaw first began performing, the Royal George Theatre, modeled after an Edwardian opera house and the Studio Theatre, the home of our contemporary Shavians in our 175-seat most intimate space. All theatres are within a short walking distance of each other.
The Royal George presents a modest exterior, but inside it’s all Edwardian gilt mouldings, red walls and golden lions! This 328-seat theatre was built as a vaudeville house to entertain the troops during World War I and now hosts the Shaw Festival’s repertory theatre productions.
