“Fabulous theatre experience for the family”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Oliver - what a show. Ourselves and the grandchildren loved the show and the cast really excelled themselves. Great to 4 grandchildren singing along and they got our youngest to sit spell bound for 2 hours.

Perfectly excellent really. Good seats and they should provide binoculars at not cost for the seats that are far away from the stage.

“Just musicals etc.”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Used to get brought here by the school and my parents when I was a lot younger and we saw some really good stuff, Royal Shakespeare Company, Oscar Peterson, Ella Fitzgerald, Royal Ballet etc. Now it's just popular music and pantomime. Nothing particularly enthralling, testing or stimulating. Nothing wrong with musicals as long as there is something else. Pity also that the a theatre management do not get some decent pictures on the listing.
