The Theatre Royal: an Illustrated History to Mark the Centennial of the Third Theatre of This Name, 1908-2008

Author(s): Howard McNaughton

Christchurch City & Banks Peninsula | Secondhand

Since February 1908 Christchurch's Theatre Royal has been the venue for thousands of plays, recitals, operas, operettas, musicals, magic shows, rock concerts, wrestling matches, public lectures- in short, almost anything that needs a stage on which to perform and seats for an audience. 'The Theatre Royal, Christchurch' traces the story from its beginning in the late Victorian period, when the city was home to two previous venues of the same name. It continues through the J.C Williamson years when the Australian entrepreneurs brought a succession of the world's most famous musical celebrities, operatic stars and acclaimed actors, and ends in recent decades when local talent has shown that it can compete with the best from elsewhere.
