You may have read in the press recently that Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) have been confirmed as the new operators of the Theatre Royal. ATG is the UK's second largest theatre group, now with 24 venues, including the King's here in Glasgow.
We are delighted at the prospect of managing such a beautiful venue as the Theatre Royal, and look forward to taking the theatre into an exciting new phase of development. Apart from running theatres in London's West End and regionally, ATG has a proven track record in producing first class, award-winning drama and musicals, and are proud to have staged a number of productions at this magnificent theatre, including Peter Ackroyd's acclaimed The Mystery of Charles Dickens starring Simon Callow, Goldoni's dazzling Servant to Two Masters, and D'Oyly Carte's superb HMS Pinafore.
We are also delighted that this spring season includes a number of ATG productions including Matthew Bourne's Highland Fling, direct from a sellout run at Sadler's Wells, and a new production of David Wood's The Witches by Roald Dahl, after a very successful run in London's West End. Other recent ATG productions on tour or in the West End include Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker!, Kristen Scott Thomas in Chekhov's Three Sisters, the RNT sellout coproduction of Michael Frayn's Noises Off, and the new musical production of Guys and Dolls starring Ewan McGregor.
ATG's aim will be to preserve the theatre's celebrated history and develop its shining future - a future in which the venue's two illustrious resident companies, Scottish Opera and Scottish Ballet, play such an important role and hold such a significant place in the hearts of the community. Drawing on the unique position ATG holds as one of the UK's two largest theatre groups, as well as its expertise as a prolific production company, ATG's promise to you, the Theatre Royal's loyal audiences, will be to provide a high quality programme of first-class theatre, an exciting array of events, and excellent customer service in this most inspiring of venues.
