excellent casting

Saw Agatha Christie's The Hollow. An excellent evening with some good amateur acting. Although the best seats are the first couple of rows as they have more legroom.

In regard to the theatre... It is shocking. The bar sold out of date crisps (after best before) - they had next to no stock to check for best before so no excuses. The theatre basically allowed the guy in front of me to translate as I told a guy in the interval and no action was taken. Only good... More

Our 2nd family visit to the Palace Theatre in Paignton. Better than ever this year. Entertaining, amusing and full of humour. A first class production, at a reasonable price. Will be back next year. Great show....................from The Webbs of Weston super Mare.

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!

We booked to see a fantastic show at the Palace Theatre on Saturday 6 September whilst on holiday in the area. This was the first time we had visited this lovely traditional theatre, which was only around 15 minutes walk from our accommodation on the sea front. 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
