This is a comfortable little theatre with approximately 380 seats, giving everyone a clear view of the stage. The staff are friendly and there is a pleasant bar area (see previous reviews). We took our granddaughter to see her first pantomime, Aladdin, performed by Paignton Pantomime Productions who describe themselves as ‘amateur’, but there was nothing amateur about this performance...

Beautiful classic setting and the show was surprisingly very impressive. They always manage to put something on that's truly entertaining and at a very reasonable price! Definitely well worth a visit at any time of year!

On arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful member of... More

Been to see 'now that's what I call a show' tonight, at Paignton's Palace Theatre and really enjoyed it. It was a proper, well rounded, fun night out. The singing was excellent. The dancers well rehearsed and choreographed. The musicians first class and it was all well orchestrated on stage by the excellent (funny and talented) Steve. I particularly liked... More

This was my first visit to the Palace Theater and I enjoyed it very much. The theater is fairly small but very nice and all seats seemed to have a good view of the stage. There is a nice bar area for drinks and intermission. The sound system was very good. The theater is a nice asset for a small... More

The idea for this show was good but the small audience meant the atmosphere was a little subdued. We had trouble getting our tickets as they had computer issues and we weren't the only ones having trouble at the box office.
