Find out all the shows you can book tickets for now at Liverpool’s Royal Court Studio

16/03/2022

Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre is the friendliest theatre in the city and a trip to The Court is night of great entertainment.

The theatre produces eight long running plays every year, mostly comedies and musicals and the shows have a Liverpool theme with largely Liverpool cast and crew.

In 2017, the downstairs basement area, which was once the home of the Rawhide Comedy Club, began a renovation to create another theatre space in which they could put on more performances as well as the ones on the main stage. With 150 seats in a mix of cabaret style and traditional rows, original art deco features and its own brand-new bar area.

Royal Court Studio

Liverpool’s Royal Court Studio is the perfect place for comedy and small-scale theatre. You will find the same high quality shows and great service that you have come to expect from the Court, only smaller.

This year, the studio has a full list of shows lined up for the first time since 2019, some just one nighters and others running for as long as 10 days. 

Stage write nights

Stage write is an evening of script in hand readings from our new writing programme. There will be a selection of 10-minute excerpts from some of the scripts that have been submitted over the last two months. This is the chance to get an early look at works in progress as a team of actors and creatives get them ready for the next stage. Feedback from the audience and questions for any of the participants will also be welcomed. The next 2 events for this are Tuesday 15th March and Tuesday 22nd March.
