Due to the upgrade of the building which is still ongoing, it is now starting to look fantastic. The shows are improving and are well worth a visit.

I went to see Mama Mia at the Opera House. This is a very old theatre and needs sprucing up. I am tall and found the seats uncomfortable. Not enough leg room.

Came especially from Manchester, for my friend's birthday, to watch the performance of: Mamma Mia... What a wonderful, toe tapping show!! We spent the last part of the show on our feet dancing to the popular Abba classics. Well acted, and the facilities at were perfect...well done to all involved

Very entertaining night, a very good musical, very good production. Just as good as the film. My partner is disabled, and they let us in the back, and he left his disability scooter just outside.

Saw Mama Mia and was blown away by this superb production. Blackpool has 2 excellent theatres and deserves to get this quality of musical production! Was foot tapping from the outset. Cast absolutely fantastic, all excellent voices...just could not fault!

Went to see mamma mia which was excellent the cast have worked very hard and the show was funny, had you singing along and was well worth paying for front row seats. We also went yo see illuminasia which was good. Enjoyed the laser show and a lot of hard work had gone into putting the show together

We saw Mama Mia in Newcastle & in London; This was the best performance. High energy performance, convincing acting, Abba songs. The plot is subtly different to the film (& is the original, of course) and you get 3 more Abba songs. Stage changes are slick and clever. Everything on the stage was very good indeed. This part of the... More

A well filled Saturday matinee and a show which had the entire audience on their feet for the last 20 minutes - superb music and sound system and a great cast who worked their socks off - what more could you wish for - topped by the Abba songs - a stunning show all round and the air conditioned Opera...
