Museum of Performing Arts
Throughout its colourful and exciting history, His Majesty's Theatre has hosted a myriad of performance genres - from ballet to contemporary dance, opera to musical theatre, vaudeville to stand-up comedy, Shakespearean drama to pantomime and more.
In February 2001, His Majesty's Theatre opened the Museum of Performing Arts.
Join Mr Ivan King, Theatre Historian, on a tour of The Maj and a gossipy and anecdotal wander through ten decades of colourful show business.
The Museum of Performing Arts houses more than 30,000 catalogued items of theatre memorabilia collected by the theatre's historian. Items such as glamorous costumes, photographs, press clippings, scripts, scores and other historic pieces are publicly exhibited at the Museum, DownStairs at the Maj, with a new exhibition to view every six to eight weeks. The oldest item in the Museum collection dates back to 1854 - a beautiful silk programme from a Perth performance of amateur theatricals.
