Fantastic panto, brilliant cast, probably the best we have seen at this theatre, Chester the jester made the show and kept us laughing all the way through. Adult group who have been coming to the panto at this theatre for many years as part of a twixmas break.

Sleeping Beauty at the Princess Theatre is simply fantastic One downside was the Dame who didnt really seem to be part of the show with little interaction with the audience The rest of the cast and the dancers were tremendous with Chester a true star ... perfect timing and very entertaining throughout The theatre is full of character and the...

We enjoyed a family visit to this year's Panto at the theatre. The story was familiar with added touches by a good cast. The dancers were attractive. The highlight of the show was the amusing version of The Twelve Days of Christmas performed by three of the lead characters. The bad fairy was not too frightening for small children and... More

But it is with sadness the group that runs this flagship Torquay attraction seem to be oblivious to the condition of the interior wooden wall panels I... More

I took my 4 year old son to see the Christmas Panto. When we got there, I was a little suprised to see they were selling childrens light up swords, wands and tiars. Although this is a nice idea for the children. A little boy that was sat in front of us, was waving his light up sword for the... More

Just felt I had to write about how disgusted I was with this show. The Public are obviously stupid! The reviews I've seen for this act prove it. OPEN YOUR EYES AND EARS! They are not good, they are DUPING the public. They are playing everything through track playback and singing over the top. This is a FAKE tribute band.... More

The Princess Theatre has a great location on the sea front and after a show (depending on the weather and the season) it's a pleasant stroll along the prom to take in the night air. The theatre could do with extensive refurbishment as it does look shabby inside and the backstage facilities need up-dating - but I can't see that... More
