The 39 steps for a great night out
Feb 2020 • Family
Out of the two prominent theatres I’ve been to in Eastbourne, Devonshire park excels at stunning architectural design and smaller but more refined plays. The comedy always seems to hit the mark, and the actors really capture the theatrical spirit of convincing the audience that they’re having a good time too, not just the crowd. There’s even benefit to seeing the same show more than once, as the staff are professionals and do a great job ad-libbing and improvising to compound the humour. Don’t sleep on this theatre, it will give you an incredible night out.

Went to see the play "Educating Rita"
Feb 2020
The play was excellent, however the so called background music was too loud. Then, when the music was played for the introduction of each scene the musical intro was VERY uncomfortable and VERY LOUD. This is the first time we have ever experienced this level of discomfort at the Devonshire Park Theatre and we have been going there for over 40 years. We do not want to go home feeling like we had just been to a rock concert and it distracts from the overall experience.

Panto ‘he’s behind you’!
Jan 2020 • Couples
I’ve seen many pantos at Eastbourne over an 18 year period and for me, the ‘baddy’ and the fairy made the panto this year. Strong singers from all principle characters which in other years some have felt A little weak in their singing and acting and of course Tucker and Martyn added the usual slapstick fun. I really wouldn’t see any other panto despite living out of the area it’s so worth coming back for.

Pantomime Jack And The Beanstalk
Dec 2019 • Family
Saw this yesterday and it is absolutely fantastic this year. Martyn and Tucker are sparking off each other once again and the baddie Steven Ferlin is superb. There was some excellent singing during the show and particularly impressive was Martyn’s heartfelt performance of Charlie Chaplins “Smile” is just beautiful and Steven Ferlins rendition of Bad Guy was delivered with rock star panache with just a hint of panto, just perfect.
The whole cast are outstanding and Tuckers comedy talent shines from start to finish with loads of laugh out loud moments. He is great with the kids at the end and so funny.

Up stairs
Dec 2019 • Family
We were really looking forward to see this pantomime with our 6 year old granddaughter, but were so disappointed with our seats as were everyone else you couldn't see the stage when I complained was told well you can move !!. I feel let down and embarrassed as my family travelled from Tunbridge wells to see this pantomime and saw a third of the stage what a let down ,so if you are going to see anything here you need to sit down stairs to see anything .very disappointing and feel so ripped off tickets are not cheep

Jack & the Beanstalk
Dec 2019 • Couples
We won tickets to see this pantomime in what is such a great historical theatre and must say that it was such a great pantomime without the famous stars - so funny and engaging with the audience. Would definitely recommend that you try to go here to see the pantomime.

All the staff here are so friendly as well which does help.

An excellent pantomime in every way!
Dec 2019
What a great time we all had! As usual, I came with a group of foreign students from the Twin English Centre and they were all mesmerised. The pantomime had everything- great costumes, fantastic singing and dancing, songs to appeal to all generations, a hilarious double act between the dame and Simple Simon, an incredible giant and superb special effects. Clarabelle won all our hearts with her expressive eyes and downcast expression, and we all enjoyed booing loudly at the suitably dastardly villain! Once again the cast and producer havedemonstrated without any doubt that Eastbourne's pantomimes are the best!

Best pantomime yet
Dec 2019 • Friends
We saw Jack and the Beanstalk. This isn't our local pantomime but we discovered a few years ago that the devonshire park theatre has the best one.
This years exceeded our expectations, I have never laughed so much in a panto, or been so amazed at so much. The dancers were excellent, the giant was a giant, fantastic singing, endless energy from all, and the baddy fleshcreep was the best baddy I've seen. There was even a pantomime cow.
Highly recommended it.

Amelie!

I have a love of Musical Theatre and have been fortunate enough to have seen most of the major, litteraly from A, Avenue Q to Z, Zoro, in venues all over the UK, Europe, USA and Australia.
This production is up there with the best.
Great, original, music, simple but fantastic set and an utterly brilliant and talented cast.
That good that I'm going to try and get another ticket for later in the week!
