My wife and I saw the ''THE UNEXPECTED GUEST'' at this lovely theatre during our holiday. The lady at the booking office was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble when booking our seats. This Agatha Christie crime thriller was a first class production. The actors and actresses all played their parts perfectly. The theatre has a nice bar... More

A great production by the players there. We thoroughly enjoyed our unplanned visit to the theatre but we hadn't hear of this Agatha Christie play - the team are excellent & very welcoming to visitors.

I went to the Palace Theatre this evening to see Agatha Christie's "The Unexpected Guest" from Bijou Theatre Productions. This play was well up to the company's usual high standard, with excellent performances from the cast, conveying the many twists and turns of the plot. It still has a couple of weeks to run, and is well worth a visit.

Went to see Agatha Cristies An Unexpected Guest at the theatre (the show itself was excellent - well worth a visit). The theatre is small but the staff very friendly. The bar is surprisingly well stocked for a small place. Plenty of street parking near by (free after 6pm) and a small park area in front which is excellent for... More

Surprisingly good for a small theatre, a music show that we were booking to see was cancelled at the last moment, but then we went to see an Agatha Christie play which was very well performed. The facilities of the theatre are excellent. This theatre needs more support to keep the facility going in the future!

Been to Torquay lots of times and always enjoy a show here if there's someone worth seeing. Did a 300 mile drive the last time just to see Joan Armatrading and she told us after the show that she rates the Palace too for the good sound in the theatre. Very clean, nice bar etc .

Went to the Palace Theatre last night to the preview of their summer variety show " Now that's what I call a show ". Very good evening. Some good voices , dance routine's & some very corny but funny jokes. What more could you want from a sea-side show !!!!
