The Princess Theatre is the flagship entertainment venue of the Devon seaside town of Torquay. Built by Torbay Council in the early 1960s, the 1500-capacity Princess Theatre hosts a variety of touring productions, attracting productions as eclectic as comedy, concerts, opera, ballet and West End musicals to the English Riviera.
The Princess Theatre saw its grand opening on Wednesday 7 June 1961 as Morecambe & Wise and Tommy Cooper delighted audiences with a laugh-out-loud show. Over the years many a famous UK artist has graced the Princess Theatre’s stage, from the Beatles to Cilla Black, while Grease, Chicago and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat are just a few of the famous West End musicals to have been staged at the theatre.
