1978 – 2000
Her Majesty’s Theatre was sold to Gabriel Rose in May 1978 after almost 80 years of association with the J C Williamson organisation. In 1987, a number of temporary alterations were made to the interior of the auditorium in order to accommodate the production of the musical Cats. All alterations made were reinstated in late 1988 at the end of the season.
In 1986, in the year of her 100th anniversary, Her Majesty’s was classified by the National Trust and listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.
