Description: The Babbacombe Theatre is a professional venue renowned for wowing...
The Babbacombe Theatre is a professional venue renowned for wowing audiences with their highly acclaimed variety shows,throughout the year and has been a valuable asset to the English Riviera for over seventy years. The all new show for 2015 will assuredly add some sparkle to a production that promises to glisten from start to finish. It saddens us to have to tell you that the nursery rhyme, 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star', is a myth. Stars only appear to twinkle! But do not despair - this is not the case with 'Starlight' which will assuredly set you all aglow. You can be confident that the cast, a 'constellation of stars', will be doing what they do best, ENTERTAIN you! Starlight, promises a night of hilarious comedy antics, whilst celebrating the very best of the old and the new amongst the realms of music in all its genres. There are musical highlights from the much loved and popular, Starlight Express and Love Never Dies as well as from The Commitments and Memphis, shows currently doing well on London's West End stages. There will be some classic pop with Ollie Murs and Rihanna songs featured and we have gone international with a much loved classic performed in Italian! Whilst the younger cast members, show you 'A Whole New World' which is guaranteed to leave everyone feeling on cloud 9! The theatre has, access for the disabled with a disabled toilet and Wheelchair spaces as well as a Loop System. For details on all the shows programmed at the venue, including Starlight please refer to the website, or contact the box office.

My wife and I went to see ''STARLIGHT'' A five star show. The performances were outstanding by each and everyone, very enjoyable from the minute the curtain went up. Just a mention for the dancers who appeared in almost the entire show, a lot of effort and hard work had gone into their routines. We came to see last years... More

This was well worth the money. Great performance by everyone. They all tried their hardest to please the audience. Great seats and fantastic location. We went to the Tuesday show and had a couple of drinks before the performance in the Babbacome inn which we eat in later in the week.

Variety show is on Tuesday and Wednesday. Enjoyable night out. Full house which was nice but elderly audience. Acts were fine and costumes very good. Nice to walk outside at the interval and look at the sea.
