Went to see Yellow on the broom. Excellent performance. Theatre has great comfy seats with loads of legroom. Great night out.

What a great location for a theatre, even if yesterday's performance wasn't my cup,of tea! With the through-put they obviously have here, a little investment in the fabric of the building would safeguard the future of this venture.

Great show in a great theatre. Only downside was that the seats are a bit short of leg room. It is fantastic to see rep theatre is alive and well.

This theatre never fails to come up with the goods. The food is excellent, the view divine, the art exhibition tempting, the shop bursting with goodies .... and the production? The Lady Killers. Amazing! A brilliant night out, as always.

Visited to see the Ladykillers on Saturday afternoon. Great show, as usual. The set was amazing, as were the actors. The show we attended was a full house. As mentioned below, when its very busy they do ask people to park in front of other cars. They do however make an announcement to let you know, if it is a... More

A very polished performance both on stage and off. Beautiful setting for a modern theatre. An efficient and friendly bar with pre-ordered interval drinks available. Although we attended on a Thursday night in late October, the show was almost a sell out. This theatre is working wonders for the local tourist trade. My only gripe is the parking. It appears...

Hi Alan, Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review - it's wonderful to hear you enjoyed your time here at PFT! Thanks for your comments regarding parking.

This theatre had six different shows on each week, repeated over the season, with the same cast doing all of the shows! We saw two shows over three nights and both were excellent - the cast were amazingly adaptable and performed magnificently. The shows were also good value as we purchased "saver tickets" which are allocated on the day of... More

saw the passing place and enjoyed it very much. The bar was great with friendly staff. We never ate here so cant comment. The theatre is very compact so you are not to far from the stage. The atmosphere is very good in the auditorium. Worth a visit

We saw Yellow on the Broom which we really enjoyed. An imaginative adaptation of an autobiography that clearly views the past with affection for a lost traveller's life, this was a challenge to adapt to the stage but worked well in this production. Excellent acoustics, a friendly atmosphere and a good gift shop. mA theatre that would be worth returning... More

It was lighthearted with a very Scottish bias so good entertainment for a holiday maker. We liked the musical.
