Perth Theatre

Perth Theatre

Perth Theatre traces its history back to the 16th century and was in private hands until 1966, when it passed to the Scottish Arts Council. Today, the venue is run by Horsecross, a company which is backed by Perth and Kinross Council.

Located on High Street in N Central Perth, (See Map) (formally Perth Repertory Theatre) was built at the end of the 19th century, at a cost of approximately £4500. Its canopied entrance was added in the mid 1960's, leads to a glass-roofed foyer and then into the charming Edwardian auditorium with roccoco decoration. Extensive restoration followed after a fire in 1924. Classified as a B-listed building, it was refurbished once again in 1981 and can accomodate 450 patrons, 290 in the stalls and a further 160 in the circle. There is the Redrooms café bar located in the foyer.
