During filming last year, the theatre's Regency auditorium was given a makeover to transform it into a historically accurate scene.

The film also features other town locations, such as Angel Hill.

Tickets go on sale to Friends of Theatre Royal on Thursday at 10am and on general sale at 10am on Friday.
