Went here in May 2013 to see Phil Cool the show was fantastic. The plaza was very clean and tidy. Before the show we went downstairs to the bar for refreshments. Staff were very polite

These tours operate at 11am on the last Monday of the month. The cost is £6 and the tour lasts about 1.5 hours. The tour guides are volunteers, whose knowledge of the history of the building is amazing. Their enthusiasm is infectious! They clearly love what they do and are passionate about preserving the theatre for future generations. On the... More

The plaza itself was lovely.No complaints about booking etc except we were not made aware that this was a charity production we read it was allegedly one of mad companys top comedys.In reality any local school could do a better job ,it was probably great for the performers, family and supporters who had low expectations and love in their hearts....

What a superb production from the Mad Theatre Company at The Plaza which is a really nice venue. The cast were fantastic and there were some really funny moments. The first half of the show is really getting to know the characters and it builds with some whitty one liners. The 2nd half builds on this excellently and really takes... More

Once again a fantastic experience from booking the tickets, easy online or go to Box Office to collecting tickets just before show from Box Office next door to entering theatre, finding seat and enjoying the whole experience. Only £1.25 booking fee which is much less than other theatres, tickets £5 each - absolute bargain. This theatre is restored beautifully, art... More

I have just got home from watching cinderella with my 6 year old daughter. We both usually LOVE pantos but I have to say this one is by far the worst I have ever seen. The costumes were cheap, the jokes were awful and so was the story. It was nothing like cinderella for starters and more time was spent... More

Traditional Panto at its best with no more innuendo than is to be expected in a Panto - or in the mind of the observer. I'm also surprised at the assertion that Cinderella should have blonde hair. Until the Disney film no hair colour was ever specified. Indeed, the basic story can be traced back to a Chinese tale in... More

I took family & friends children to see Cinderella & The Plaza is a fantastic venue. It wasn't what I expected at all. Very good views everywhere (I have been told) & we were in the stalls near the back (row P) & I can only agree. I'll definitely return now I know how lovely it is.

I love Ted. and a bravo to Garry Damer, . The music was to loud. I enjoyed the dancers. Cinderella could not sing that was painful to listen to... More

I have to admit I hate Panto ( ok, I'm the Grinch) and my heart sank when my son got a part in Cinderella. But, like the good supportive parent I am I went to support him. What a lovely suprise this gem of a theatre was. We were greeted outside by a gentleman in a dress coat who checked... More
