The Georgian Theatre Experience at The Georgian Theatre Royal, Richmond, Yorkshire Dales

Joanne and I were invited to the Georgian Theatre Royal in Richmond for a look behind the scenes! Literally! We arrived on a rainy Wednesday afternoon, along with others, and thoroughly enjoyed an interesting and informative hour or so led by our volunteer guide. The Georgian Theatre Experience is a one hour long tour, venturing back stage, into the stars dressing rooms, even onto the stage!
