Lovely quaint theatre, you can see from all seats , leg room a little tight though. Calamity jane was a wonderful production , well done to all the performers!

We went as a group to see The ELO experience (who were awful). The audience sat emotionless as the band played and bizarrely we were asked to leave because we were singing along!! The rude staff member said "this isn't the Manchester Apollo you know, it's a theatre". Excuse us for enjoying ourselves. The theatre is also now quite tatty.

Billy J Kramer was a disgrace. People were leaving the theatre. The rest of the show was fine. Some producer or promoter must have seen his performance before the tour started. How was he allowed to top the bill?

A most enjoyable evening, was part of my Christmas present from my Daughter and Husband. *Calamity Jane * I had a great night with my Daughter, the performance of all the Actors Brilliant you felt that you wanted to get up there with them and sing . Another way of looking at it if someone said I have tickets do... More

Well what can I say the show was going well until Billy J Kramer came on he looked a mess and his singing (if you could call it that) was atrocious. It was embarrassing to say the least we left early.

We visited this place for he first time & thought it was a lovely quaint theatre. You get a good view from all seats. The atmosphere was fabulous & the show amazing. The staff were very welcoming & helpful too. Have already booked my next show!

I love blood brothers and have seen it quite a few times. I'm glad I've just read one of the other reviews as Marti Pellow spoilt it for us too but I thought we'd be the only ones to think it! He sounded quite muffled and was hard to understand. At one point his accent sounded scottish! He has really... More

Marti Pellow spoilt it for me, at times, or on quite a few occasions actually his poor diction and wandering in and out of a very weak liverpool accent meant unless you had seen the show before or read the script you would have missed little insights into the storyline. An ok production. Nothing to say about the theatre, except... More

Ok I'm not going to give this venue a poor review because I could not get comfortable in the cheap seats, but I will post a warning that unless you are a child or extremely petite you will not be able to sit comfortably for the whole show. That's the less impressive part of my review the theatre is fantastic... More
