A valuable asset to the English Riviera for nearly eighty years, the Babbacombe Theatre in Torquay, is renowned for wowing audiences with their highly acclaimed family variety shows, performed throughout the year by a professional cast. The ENTERTAINMENT factor is paramount to the successes of the productions at the celebrated venue and this year will be no exception.

2018 will mark the 4th consecutive year the venue continues to be ranked on TripAdvisor’s Theatres and Performances listing as not only the Number 1 theatre in Torquay, but in Devon! It is also, a winner of the Certificate of Excellence Award again making it seven successive years. The Babbacombe Theatre is also the only theatre in the Bay to have produced successive ‘5 STAR’ productions for three years.

During 2018 as well as their own productions STARSHINE & WEST END AT THE MOVIES, appearances from iconic performers are bound to make an impression at the Babbacombe Theatre. Enjoy Tim Vine, Rich Hall, G4, Ed Byrne, Milton Jones & Showaddywaddy to name just a few! 

Expect elements of danger, magic and comedy with Starshine, albeit there will also be some breath-taking moments as the cast celebrates the musicals too. Enjoy tributes to some of the most iconic pop stars, including Michael Jackson, who would have turned 60 this year.  

West End at the Movies, whilst enjoying nostalgic musical medleys, you can expect highlights from award winning Big screen smash hits!
