    Compact Theatre
    This was the first time we had been to a show at the Playhouse. A very Compact theatre. There was a bar facility downstairs but I did not use it as the show was sold out. Saw seven drunken nights, which was most enjoyable. I have booked another show in May 2023

    Another Great Night
    Another visit to the Epsom Playhouse last night and another most enjoyable night The “Elvis Years” did not disappoint, he may not have been the ideal Elvis but what a voice. All the favourites and a long show – we got our money’s worth. And not only Mario but his backing group – the two girls and the four guys, what talent. Thank You. We never take all the very friendly volunteers and the backstage boys and girls for granted – we are so lucky to have the Epsom Playhouse. It is such a friendly small and compact theatre with a great atmosphere, we know that the stars all love it (because they told us) Long may it continue and thanks again to all concerned.

    Best Epsom Panto Ever!
    We go to the panto every year and always love it. We loved the magic man song, the costumes, dancing & the sweet dog. We left feeling very happy. Thankyou Epsom PH. *****

This is my local beloved theatre. I was here today in order to see Dick Whittington. It was so much fun. I sat in a high up viewing box that was facing the main stage. I was blown away by the entire show and the team of actresses and actors. I will certainly return. You must try to get decent quality seats in advance if possible. I also strongly recommend arriving half a hour early to use the loos, buy a cheap drink and some sweets. The whole performance was so beautiful to see.
Get tickets before the actual show. You can find all of the show details on their website. Dick Whittington is a must see in addition. I loved it. All of it.

What an amazing find - bi-weekly high quality jazz from a variety of top musicians in the Studio Theatre. Brilliant music, a pint of beer and a really friendly, convivial atmosphere. Support your local theatres, support live music. This is a gem - I’ve never heard a mediocre band play here, they’ve always been top class.

Really negative experience dealing with box office. Tickets for a show cancelled due to Covid. They say they sent an email out advising new booking date. Never received. Now won't accept a refund on our tickets.

Having really enjoyed the amazing Beauty & The Beast panto at the Epsom Playhouse in 2015 we returned this year full of expecation for their production of Aladdin.

Without doubt it was the worst, most shambolic and badly produced production I've ever had the misfortune of sitting through.

There were no celebrity names in it this year - the best they could muster was a bloke from storage hunters called 'Heavy D' and a lame impressionist from Britain's Got Talent.

The production started off badly, with Heavy D slurring his way through the limited lines he was given as the genie, and the whole think lumbered on from there, with a cast who who clearly had no acting experience and leads who couldn't sing to save their lives.

Last year's panto at Epsom Playhouse was witty, with a professional panto dame on stage and a cast who improvised and riffed off each other with great double-entendres to entertain the adults. This year, the humour was gone and it was quite uncomfortable watching the lame gags fall flat on their faces. All we were left with was a couple of hours of very uncofortable ham acting with no proper storyline.

It's not the cast's fault - the producers clearly struggled this year to cast anyone decent and most of those on stage had no idea how to act or how to engage an audience. I don't know what was most unfair - putting a bunch of amateurs on stage in front of the public, or charging £20 a ticket for people to see it.

Some of the more professional supporting cast made a decent effort at it, but the 'leads' struggled to project their voices and enunciate properly, so it a lot of the time they were inaudible and my 7 year old barely laughed through the whole shambolic production.

£60 for 3 people to sit through a dreadful slapdash mess of a panto! Never again. Shame on you Epsom Playhouse.

Visited this theatre many times over the last few years, this time for Aladdin the Panto on day 3.

The ushers were dreadful, not a good start! A lady in what appeared to be a Scout uniform was bossing our group about telling us to get into the auditorium but by her very presence blocking the entry! Not sure if she was in official duty but.....

The older gentlemen checking tickets, well I say that but he was just grumbling that the 'whole place was madness' tearing tickets and throwing them back at us! Very rude and to be honest if he can't cope with a full house he shouldn't be there. Not a great attitude with a theatre full of children either.

The show itself was poor. We weren't expecting top standard but 'Heavy D' - whoever he is, was inaudible! Jokes were just not funny, singing and dancing very amateur. The saving grace was one of the headlines from Eldorado, yes Eldorado - I kid you not!

Pay a bit more and travel to Wimbledon I'd say. As for the theatre staff, some customer service training would be good!

As a whole, the seating in the main block is good and i have seen some good shows & performances BUT, seats on the side to the rear are totally overpriced, uncomfortable and awkward. Last week, I had to sit on the edge of my chair for most of the evening and look over the trellis balcony because that was the only way to see the lovely Suggs on stage. The person to my left also had the same problem & i had to lean even further forward than he. It really spoilt the show for me and at £27, it was not money well spent.
