Opening Dates and Times

Palace Theatre (2 Jan 2022 - 31 Dec 2022)

About

Take your seats and let the show begin as the curtain rises at one of Devon’s favourite community theatres.

With performances and events running 50 weeks of the year you will be sure to find something to suit your tastes, from popular dramas to top-name entertainers and of course a very popular Panto season – oh yes there is!

Benefiting from a major refurbishment in 2006, the 368 seats provide not just comfort but excellent viewing from all areas. You can select and book your seats online 24/7 and enjoy pre-show and interval drinks in the bar. The Palace Theatre is in the heart of Torbay, just a 2-minute walk from Paignton town centre and with free roadside evening parking.

Bravo! Encore! You’ll want to keep coming back for more.

Tickets for the Palace Theatre are available from the English Riviera Visitor Information Centre on Vaughan Parade, Torquay, the Palace Theatre Box Office and online. Details of shows can be found via the whats on calendar. Please browse and see what there is to enjoy during your visit.

Bijou Theatre Productions - produce four productions per year and has Theatre Club with an audience membership. You do not have to join to act, but you can join to watch. Their membership entitles you to see all of the annual plays (except the Agatha Christie).

The aim is to promote good quality drama and provide community theatre. They also run an annual season of Agatha Christie featuring one of her plays every year.

Paignton Pantomime Productions - is proud of its history and of all those dedicated people who, throughout its eighty years existence, have worked so hard to present a pantomime to the residents of Paignton and South Devon each Christmas.

Not just any pantomime but and award-winning one ‘oh yes it is!’…

      The band were excellent, however the conductor interspersed the music with his diatribe of dribble. Someone needs to find him a better script writer. Read full review
