Oh what a night! Lovely theatre, welcoming staff and a smashing show towards the end of our holiday. A must see for Frankie Valli fans. Age no limit

The idea for this show was good but the small audience meant the atmosphere was a little subdued. We had trouble getting our tickets as they had computer issues and we weren't the only ones having trouble at the box office.

My wife and I saw the ''THE UNEXPECTED GUEST'' at this lovely theatre during our holiday. The lady at the booking office was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble when booking our seats.
This Agatha Christie crime thriller was a first class production. The actors and actresses all played their parts perfectly.
The theatre has a nice bar area where we had a drink before the play. Although we had front row seats looking around the theatre I would imagine you would have a good view from any seat!There was no problem with parking as there is free parking after 6 around or near the theatre.

Small Theatre located near the main shopping centre of Paignton. Has unrestricted views of the stage where ever you sit.
