Excellent fast moving family variety show to suit all ages from 8 to 108!

All the acts are wonderful and put together make a brilliant show.

Lots of music, singing and clever comedy.

Plenty of songs you know and love, you will want to sing along and join in.

Look out for Tom, sure to be a star of the future and an amazing drumming interlude in the second half.

If you live locally get along to the theatre and buy some tickets for you and your family.

If you are in Torbay on holiday, it really is an excellent show to go and watch.

The tickets are great value.

don't miss it!!

What we liked:-
Nicely refurbished auditorium with comfortable seats and good views of the stage; delighted to find one of the few theatres in the area with regular performances; great idea to run Agatha Christie plays during the summer given her connections to the area; excellent cast and production quality
What we disliked:-
Can't think of anything!
