Royal MTC has excellent acoustics and the lighting and sound are always on par with anything on Broadway. We did not care for the subject matter, seemed to be a lot of screaming and swearing, but have kept our season tickets anyways. Looking forward to the next show.

I haven't been to MTC in a few years but always enjoy it. There are no bad seats in the theatre, the acoustics are wonderful and the seats are relatively comfortable. Parking is always a bit of a nightmare but it is a 20 minute walk from any downtown hotel in nice weather. The show we saw this time (Boom!)... More

The Royal MTC is a gem. We've been annual subscribers since moving into the city in '98. The six plays each year are a treat. We find there are a one or two standouts, a few good ones an one 'stinker'; however, the adventure is going and discovering. We've been treated to some amazing performances over the years. The facility... More

My wonderful children bought me a ticket to see a play at the Manitoba Theatre Centre for my birthday. The play they chose was "Unnecessary Farce". My ticket was in centre front, row 4... an ideal spot so see and hear everything. I laughed so much throughout the whole play..it was an absolute riot! There were only seven cast members... More

Last night I went to " Billy Elliot the Musical". The tickets were part of my season ticket package; normally I don't buy tickets to musicals as neither myself or my husband are fans of musicals. Well I have to say I was blow away as was the rest of the audience, we gave a standing ovation and recommend Billy... More

We joined the annual subscriber program when we moved to the city 17 years ago and have never regretted the investment. The six plays throughout the year are often varied and wonderfully done. For us there is about one play a year that is difficult to stay for the second act; however the other five more than make up for... More

I give the theater high marks and usually love the productions. It's a wonderful intimate venue with great nearby restaurants and pretty good parking. This recent play was by far the worst thing I have ever seen in my life!!!!

The play, Wisenthal, was superb! We expected a challenging and possibly depressing performance (because of the subject matter), but found ourselves challenged and uplifted, with a desire to understand and help our fellow man.
