A great lively show which was very entertaining. A great evening out at a local theatre is always a pleasant experience and this was no exception. Great singing voices.

Exceptionally professional production that kept us mesmerized the whole way through. The vocallists were better than amazing ... the magician was spellbinding and the comedy will have you crying with laughter. What a fabulous performance by all the cast. Worth much more than the £18 charge which includes collection from your hotel. A truly enjoyable evening from beginning to end

I was impressed with the quality of the group performance. The singing and dancing with the Queen numbers were highlights. The male entertainers were hilarious and some of the sketches were better than I had seen on tv. Good clean humour lots of innuendo and glamour. Excellent value for money.

I watched 'Fantasy' at the Babbacombe theatre last week and thought the show was outstanding. The amazing dancers, junior dancers, vocalists, illusionist and comedians brought together a show that was pure class entertainment. This show is well worth a visit, book your tickets you won't be disappointed, it is very worthy of a 5 star rating.

Such a good show! The singing is really amazing, such a high standard, with some beautifully dramatic moments and fabulous dancing as well. The choice of the songs is really current and makes for a thoroughly entertaining evening. Well done everyone!

Babbacombe Theatre is situated in a beautiful spot and as there are a few eateries along the road you can enjoy a meal or drink and stroll overlooking the sea before the show. With regards to the show itself, we thought... More
