The term “costume jewellery” comes from the theatre. It refers to specially made “fake” jewellery that is part of a stage costume, there being an old actors’ superstition that it is very bad luck to wear real jewels (or handle real money) on the stage.
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!
