Refurbished in 2006 the BABBACOMBE THEATRE, has been a valuable asset to the town for over seventy years having been renowned for wowing audiences with their highly acclaimed shows, most especially since 1986 when Matpro Limited took over the venue. Apart from 2016 marking the 30th anniversary of Colin Matthews, it is the year the venue topped the ranking on TripAdvisors theatres and performances in not only Torquay, but in Devon, having previously been in receipt of their Certificate of Excellence Award for four consecutive years. It was also the only theatre in the Bay to have produced three consecutive ‘5 STAR’ productions.
Colin remains as enthused now as he did when he first opened in 1986 to keep variety alive, albeit nowadays it is as much about receiving regular ‘online’ reviews, ‘check ins’, ‘hits’ and ‘tweets’ reaching out across cyberspace as it is about the show itself.
In this digital age, ‘Starstuck’, has a cast that promises side – splitting comedy, powerful vocalists delivering dynamic songs and elegant dancers who are endlessly energetic performing to entertain you, up close and personally.
During 2016 as well as STARSTRUCK & THE MUSIC OF THE NIGHT, appearances from iconic british performers are bound to make a lasting impression. See Lulu, Brian Conley, Liza Pulman, Rich Hall, Tony Christie and even Paul Gascoigne. There really is something to ENTERTAIN YOU at the Babbacombe Theatre throughout 2016.
Having worked with some of the biggest names in the world of entertainment for over 30 years, producer Colin Matthews, now actively seeks out new and versatile performers for his productions which, together with his youth policy, has resulted in the discovery and development of young talent with success nationally and in the West End for many performers that have appeared in his shows.
