The word “theatre” comes from the Greek theatron and means a “place for seeing,” The first known European theatre performances took place in Greece, around 600 B.C., as part of the religious festivals in honour of Dionysus, the god of wine and fertility.
Each of our theatres - the Royal Alexandra, the Princess of Wales, the Ed Mirvish (formerly the Canon) and the Panasonic - has a unique floor-plan and seating arrangement. To help you locate your seats, find the seats that most interest you, or familarise yourself with the layout of the auditorium, you may choose a theatre below to see the seating plan of that venue. All seating plans are also available for downloa d and printing at home as high-quaiity PDFs. A feature allowing you to see views of the stage from different seating locations is coming soon!
