Calamity Jane

We went last week to see Calamity Jane, what a good show, was disappointed that Jodie Prenger was not in it as she was ill. We sat in the circle and had a good view of the stage.

Not very easy to find the first time you go but this is a great venue that has a wide range of interesting performances including opera, ballet and plays to suit all tastes.

We went to see a couple of local theatre productions and we thoroughly enjoyed both trips! The theatre itself is stunning, beautifully designed and kept spotless! As both of us are 6ft tall we were very happy to discover the excellent leg room inside the theatre :-)

The Curve is a very good Theatre with a car park right next door with discounted rates for Theatre goers. You need to get your car park ticket stamped in the Theatre. It not a massive Theatre which is part of its charm and you are very close to the action.

What a fabulous show "Calamity Jane" was at the curve. Jodie Prenger was outstanding for her talents in acting dancing and of course her terrific singing voice as Calamity Jane. The Curve is a terrific venue, well laid out and organised. The bars and refreshments etc are easily accessible and parking nearby is convenient and doesn't cost the earth. Great... More

As all modern Theatres the Curve is accessible good spacious toilets and if you book they remove the seats for your chair. their is a discount for your pusher or helper (if you need one) BUT you do have to sit at the side and this does mean a restricted view for some performances.

Just returned from yet another terrific show at Curve- Calamity Jane. I have enjoyed the film version at least ten times so was a bit apprehensive about a stage version. However as usual Curve put on a superb version with great scenes and a very good cast- well done everyone
