“Recommended!”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

We have not been to the Palace Theatre for a while, but were so glad we went on Tuesday night. We saw the Rocking with Laughter Show - absolutely brilliant. A wonderful mix of music and great laughs from the amazing Steve Laister. An excellent cast - they had all clearly worked very hard to make the show what it is. Don't miss it! The theatre itself was wonderful and every member of staff was courteous and very helpful. Please support the theatre and their performances, you cannot beat a live show. Highly recommended.

“The laughter show summer 2013 catch it while you can”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

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!!
