Lyceum Theatre - Review

If you fancy a musical treat within the walls of a grand, gorgeous, Rococo styled theatre, come to the Lyceum Theatre. It is a part of the Sheffield Theatres Complex along with the Crucible Theatre, and countless classics have been performed in this magnificent building, such as Sleeping Beauty and Evita. This traditional Victorian style theatre with ornate balconies and boxes, and its spacious red velvet seats which slope forward to provide clear views, create a luxurious space where different productions are enjoyed by hundreds of people. With a comfortable and contemporary bar area manned by attentive staff, this is a great way to unwind and feel a little pampered while exploring the performance arts.

Since 1879, this particular site has always been home to a theatre though it was initially meant to be a circus. In 1893, the original building, the Grand Varieties Theatre, burnt down to the ground and was replaced by the City Theatre, which in turn was destroyed in order to pave the way for the Lyceum that stands there today. Wooden and with a traditional proscenium arch, the beauty of the theatre is crowned with a statue of the mythological Greek God, Mercury, son of Zeus and Maia.

The Lyceum is responsible for keeping the spirit of pantomime alive, famous for its an annual Christmas pantomime. Famous British actors, producers and even radio stars of old would flock to this theatre, right up till its closure in 1969. When it opened its doors again in the 1990’s, the art of pantomime returned to its halls. In 2007, Sheffield Theatres starting co-producing plays with Evolution Pantomimes putting up numerous programs in the subsequent years. In 2013 and 2014, it was voted the Regional Theatre of the Year. There are numerous studio shows and workshops you can catch. Today, you can visit their official website to find out their show listings and book or buy tickets.

Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield Reviews

  • This is a charming, period theatre. The seats are comfortable, all with a good view of the stage. I thoroughly enjoyed the production of "Strangers on a Train". Would have given 5 stars, but for the access and egress points to and from the foyer, which are not terribly spacious. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.

  • Went last month to see an Officer and a Gentleman with my mum and sister but I felt ill towards the end of the first part of the performance which led to all of us leaving before the start of the second part despite me telling my mum and sister to stay. Staff were concerned and couldn't have been more helpful, giving me a quiet area, water, and even a screen to continue watching the show. When we all agreed that we were going to leave before the second part we were even offered seats for that show at a later date in the week but we didn't take them up on that kind offer. A big thanks to all their staff though for showing concern and compassion.

  • Beautiful theatre. First rate productions. Jersey Boys last night. Superb despite a technical glitch. Front of house & bar staff friendly & knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

  • Startizng with car parking, we selected the recommended Charles Street facilities which was a five minute walk away, and passed several eating places if required, prior to the show. The Lyceum frontage gave no clues away as to how large the auditorium and stage were, however we navigated easily to our seats. We had a fantastic inclusive view of the performance which enabled us to be enveloped in the story unfolding. Living in Lincoln we have our very own illustrious New Theatre Royal which we've patronized many many times over the years and our fantastic experience at the Sheffield Lycium made our evening out complete.

  • Great show. Jersey Boys. Fantastic music Brilliantly and authentically delivered by a fantastic cast. Story was clear to follow. In the incredible Lyceum theatre. Enough said.
