Aberdeen's eminent theatre His Majesty's Theatre (HMT) was designed by the eminent theatre architect Frank Matcham and opened in 1906. HMT attracts a wide and diverse range of top quality theatre productions from musicals to top class drama and dance.
The theatre seats around 1470 people and was reopened in September 2005 following a major £8million re-development . The redevelopment successfully added a modern aspect to an historic Edwardian building and the new facilities have brought the theatre to life both day and night offering 21st century theatre goers a truly memorable experience.
HMT is operated by Aberdeen Performing Arts, a charitable organisation which also operates and manages the Music Hall, The Lemon Tree and Aberdeen Box Office.

It was one of the best shows from start to the all too quick end I have ever seen! Thank you for bringing it to us! The atmosphere in the crowd was electric! And I felt the cast were enjoying it as much as the audience ! It was FABULOUS! Please let the cast and all your staff know much we enjoyed the show! 😊” “Went to see it on Saturday. The atmosphere was great. I'm not an ABBA fan but loved it What makes it even better is that the part of Sky is played by a young Scottish actor from the north east.” “Absolutely brilliant. Saw it this afternoon with my son. Came home and booked to see it again with my husband and some friends. Loved it!” “Was in on Tuesday night. Was just bliss! Well done to all the cast. In again the last night – same seat, same row. Am also hoping to go in with family too!”
