Managed by Jazz Hands, a Community Interest Company, the theatre works closely with Bijou Theatre Productions, Doorstep Arts, Paignton Pantomime Productions and a wide range of touring companies and performers to offer a full and exciting programme for South Devon residents and visitors; everything from stand-up to Shakespeare! Come along and share our passion for ballet, opera, touring plays, live tribute bands, musical shows, ‘audience with’, variety, children’s shows and film.
