Visited last night (5th jan 2019) with friends. What a lovely place, the show was fantastic for all ages. Outstanding performance for us was SPITE the wicked witch, she belted out some great lines & songs. Good luck in the future to Helen Colby.

I was given tickets to Moonfleet a couple of weeks ago. Just amazing. The production, the set and the voices were faultless. Then, randomly, I saw that Macbeth was on and since it was one of the only things I remember from school, I bought...More
