The North-East Area Society invites you to a Study Day:

The Theatre Royal York: Past, Present and Future

Find out about the fascinating history of the Theatre Royal, from the Romans through to the present day. Discover the Georgian folly backstage, learn why a stage is called a deck and why you must never whistle in a theatre. Listen to a talk by Angus Morrogh-Ryan, the leading architect for the theatre’s £4.1 million renovations that have transformed into a building fit for the 21st century. And finally take a tour of the Theatre and discover what happens both front and back stage.
