Babbacombe Theatre Babbacombe Theatre, Torquay. Box Office 01803 328385

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 variety shows, performed throughout the year by a professional cast.

The party's on….and only comes this time of year.
The mood will be right, and the spirit of goodwill will abound in the all new festive family show, Wonderful Christmastime.

Comedy will feature throughout; in more than one guise! Enjoy comedic one liners, funny stories and numerous side-splitting sketches. If you like to celebrate the yuletide season with laughter, then this show will not disappoint.

Happy memories will come flooding back as the cast reminisce and share with you some enchanting musical moments. There will be songs from Cats, Anything Goes, Aladdin, A Star is Born and Sister Act, as well as pop classics and seasonal favourites that span the decades featuring hits from Ed Sheeran, Mariah Carey, Paul McCartney, The Waitresses, Tom Jones and Neil Diamond.

Regular headliners and Babbacombe favourites make a welcome return, comedian Andy Oakley is joined by special guest, comedy impressionist Phil Lowen, Britain’s Got Talent vocalist Sami-Jane, West End star Lily Laight and International singing sensation, Damien James. Their wealth of experience and versatility is undoubtedly what makes them so popular with the venue’s audiences.

Inspirational choreography slickly executed by Danze Fantastique. As they adorn the stage delivering pacey routines, the dancers are the ‘Christmas Wrapping’, adding the ‘joy’ to the ‘jingle’ that are the musical arrangements.

Make new memories with your family and friends during a visit to see a Wonderful Christmastime. Whilst not the traditional family outing - that’s usually to see a pantomime - this production will raise your spirits, which is one of the defining qualities the season of goodwill should bring.

Audience participation is encouraged and as this show is for all ages it’s a great opportunity to enjoy the spirit of the festivities, with not only friends and family, but with likeminded people who revel in the music, magic & mirth of the season.

The cast look forward to welcoming friends old and new, sharing their joy and ENTERTAINING you. Merry Christmas everyone!
