About Hull New Theatre
Hull New Theatre is one of Hull’s premium venues for showing high-profile theatre productions. It opened in 1939 as a successor to the Hull Repertory Theatre Company and has since welcomed many of London’s West End hit shows including The Sound of Music, Fame The Musical, Rock of Ages and Jersey Boys.
With a capacity of 1,159, it’s also one of the largest show theatres in the region. It’s owned and operated by Hull City Council and is currently under an extensive £11m refurbishment – set to reopen in September 2017.
