This theatre has bit of a monopoly in Torbay for large productions although there are other smaller theatres in the area which put on reasonable shows.

We were looking forwards to visiting the theatre while we were on holiday in Torquay. Unfortunately nothing was on while were there. Considering it was the height of the summer holidays we were surprised they did not have things on right through the 6 weeks break…they were missing out.

I have seen a number of performances here... ballet, pantomine, live music and on tour west end shows. We've visited with children and as a couple and always had a great time!! Highly recommended for a great night out without having to travel miles from home!

Old fashioned seaside Theatre, prices for seats are reasonable, tip would be to buy from box office directly, very warm evening and so a little uncomfortable and food expensive. Play iconic and worth the visit.

Circle seats were good but the heat within the auditorium was too hot to handle. Add to that discomfort a boring play and you can see why we left at half time

We saw "The Mouse Trap" here at the home town of Agatha Christie and it was a 100% top play.It was acted by a first class cast.I would recommend this venue to all.

Went to the princess theatre to watch Marti pellow in evita. Took along my daughter and we might have had cheap seats but I think we had some if the best ones in the place! Theatre could do with modernising a little bit but there shows are first class. Well done!!!!
