“A Great Little Theatre”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

I have been to a number of productions at the Maddermarket over the years and all of them good or excellent. The theatre itself is cosy and has character. The seats are comfortable and the leg room reasonably good. The productions are of really good quality and we enjoy them just as much if not more than the larger glossier shows at the Theatre Royal. When booking the staff are very friendly and helpful and the actors give the shows their all.
I always look forward to seeing what is on at the Maddermarket and believe it is a local theatre well worth supporting.

“Fabulous theatre”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

I haven't been here recently but if there was a production that you fancied seeing- please go along. The theatre itself is wonderful - I love being at the top and peering down from the gods onto the stage when everything is so close

“Great Expectations”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

This is the title of the play - nothing to do with us! Lovely local am-dram theatre with cheerful and polite volunteer stewards. The play captured Dicken's story well.

“A Great Place For Theatre”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

The Maddermarket is small and cosy and offers top quality performances by its own very talented theatre group and also by visiting artists. A Norwich institution for a very long time it is always worth catching a performance here.

“All theatres should be like this.”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

This is a small theatre run by a few professionals but maintained by an army of volunteers and has the best group of amateur players in England. In the 50 years we have attended the theatre,even bad plays have been made tolerable by the excellence of the actors. They also have very good visiting acts - look on line at their schedule.
