We visit the show every Christmas with our family and wouldn't miss it for the world! It never fails to have us in tears with laughter and the cast have as much fun as the audience. Such a special show. We feel proud to support such amazing local talent.

Loved spending New Year's Eve at this great show - was the ideal entertainment (and we didn't even have any kids!). Thanks for making us crease-up!

We chose the Barbican theatre over the Theater Royal for our short stay in Plymouth and definitely made the right choice.The Wizard of Oz was great, plenty of fun for both kids and adults alike. Le Navet Bete are great, fresh, innovative young local talent, the actors even hang around afterwards in the bar for chat. My kids wanted to... More

We love watching La Navet Bete at this gorgeous and friendly theatre in a quaint part of Plymouth. It is a real treat for us to drive up from Exeter for an excellent show for all the family, guaranteed fun and laughter followed by a wonderful and authentic Thai meal afterwards. We loved The Wizard of Oz and are going... More

I brought along my parents for the first time to see this company, and they loved it. They can't wait for their next production, and we're the same too!

Great little theatre - a real hidden gem - staff are friendly, food is good value for money, and a fantastic range of entertainment from live music, dancing and theatre. I have visited with various friends and family over the past 3 years, but must go more often as it's always a brilliant night out!

We love the Barbican theatre. It is tiny and very intimate. We have been taking our nieces and more recently our grand children over a number of years and have always thoroughly enjoyed the experience - just as much as the children. The latest Wizard of Oz show was excellent. Our 3 grandchildren aged 7 and 9 enjoyed every minute.... More

Saw the Wizard of Oz Pantomime from Le Navet Bete with 3 generations of our Family. This was the fifth different show of theirs we had seen. Yet again an amazing performance - full of laughs. We have already booked for Dick Tracey which they are performing in April. You really need to see these talented guys in action. Can't... More
