Brilliant!

Booked on line at last minute and had a fantastic evening. This is a very intimate theatre so you get fully immersed in the play. We saw Noel Coward’s fallen angels performed superbly.

Too hot
Aug. 2019
The brilliant production of Blythe Spirit which we caught on its closing night was slightly spoiled by the intolerable heat and stuffiness of this old theatre. Surely some better ventilation could be put in or some doors left ajar or something??

Summer soiree
Aug. 2019
We have been enjoying these plays for over 20 years and rarely missing any. sadly only two this year (we used to have 5), with and extra event comprising 3X1 act plays. All super, hope it survives for the next 20 years. Needs support, but the town is losing residents at an alarming rate, with too many 2nd homes / holiday lets.

Great experience..very funny play
Aug. 2019 • Couples
We called to book and all was very well orgsnised and the lady who we spoke to so helpful. This was our second visit as we came about three years ago. We watched Murder in Play on a Wednesday evening and it was lovely to see the theatre fully sold out. The play was really funny and standard of acting and production excellent. Excellent local ice creams on sale in interval as well. Would highly recommend!

Tired plays
Aug. 2018 • Friends
Summer Theatre in a seaside resort strikes as fun, enjoyable and an escape from the everyday. Summer Theatre 2018 failed to bring that, even showcasing an Agatha Christie that was not a 'whodunnit' but a more 'serious' play about a mother and daughter relationship and a play that had not been performed for decades.........
The seating in the Jubilee Hall is not that comfortable and the toilets are positively archaic. The performers are good, many returning year on year and the Box Office and Front of House staff helpful hardworking.

Well worth going
Aug. 2016 • Couples
Watched a murder mystery/comedy which was one of the productions on over the summer..quality of writing and acting was really good and we were gripped with all the twists and turns. Loved the covered bar which had a pleasant atmosphere and good drinks selection. Would definitely go again next summer.

This was our first visit and we definitely plan to book again next year. We enjoyed the play, the marquee bar/tea shop was excellent value with lovely staff. Booking and collecting the tickets was easy.
