Richard Offen returns with Carmen Braidwood, explaining the history behind His Majesty’s Theatre in Perth.
- Located on the corner of Hay Street and King Street, His Majesty’s Theatre is an Edwardian Baroque theatre in Perth.
- The building was constructed from 1902 to 1904, as a result of the Western Australian gold rush, a great period of growth for the town.
- Downstairs from the main foyer, you can find a collection of costumes, programs and old relics from His Majesty’s Theatre, which is lovingly curated by Ivan King, who founded the museum in 1980.
