Babbacombe Theatre / Events / Tue 15 Feb to Wed 19 Oct 2022 (8 months)



Starlight as you’d expect from its title will be a show that promises to illuminate your day, and when times have been dark, isn’t it reassuring to have quality entertainers, that can lighten up the darkest night, at Torquay’s celebrated venue, the Babbacombe Theatre?

The production will feature some of the most iconic names in music, TV, the movies, and Musical Theatre. All performed by a talented cast, whose flame promises to never dim throughout the entire production. They will embrace the comedic talents of the 2 Ronnie’s, Dame Edna Everidge and Britain’s Got Talent’s Stavros Flatley, to name just a few. Hear them, sing opulent songs from stunning movie soundtracks, West Side Story, Easy Rider and Moulin Rouge, from Broadway and West End award winning shows, Starlight Express, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Tick Tick Boom. They are just as adept too at performing pop hits old and new, with songs from the Beatles, Sir Elton John, Dame Shirley Bassey, Tina Turner, S Club 7, Steppenwolf and Westlife.

‘Fun’ & ‘Fabulous’ are the two words most used in reviews on TripAdvisor, Google and on our social media pages for our annual seasonal shows. Just as is the comment, “Steve Laister – he should be on the TV” has been. Well, he may not be on the television, but what the show’s Producer/Director, Colin Matthews can promise for 2022 is that Steve will once again, be doing what he does best… ENTERTAIN YOU, as he headlines and introduces you to some new never seen before, unique comedic characters. As a winner of the 'Sir Norman Wisdom's Award for ‘Comedy Excellence' Steve, is as equally poised as a singer as he is a comedian.

Pitching towards the heavens and reaching for the stars with their astounding vocal ability are West End Vocalist, Paul Cobley, multi-talented Wayne Martin, singing sensation Lindsey Collard, star of, ‘The Voice’ Holly Cosgrove and Almost Nearly Perfect 3 delightful little beams of sunshine, our very own Kidz & Co.

It takes a great team to organise and orchestrate a successful theatre production, and Starlight is no exception to that rule. Danze Chique, the resident team of dancers, are a bevy of gorgeous young ladies who continue to raise the standard every season, with their effervescent performances. Their commitment to interpreting the vibrant choreography of Lucy O’Neill, working in harmony with the exciting musical arrangements of Pete Leonard is paramount to the show’s success.

What could be very ordinary becomes extraordinary when everyone gets the chance to shine. With the dynamic mix of a great script, combining classic variety from decades past with current and new topics, the constellation of stars performing on the Babbacombe boards will be looking to exceed audiences’ expectations throughout 2022.
