Tuesdays & Wednesdays 14th February - 18th October incl. 8.15pm Matinee: Wednesday 16th August 2.30pm
Stardust is not just cosmic dust, it is often described as a magical or charismatic feeling, and in the all-new family variety show at the Babbacombe Theatre for the 2023 season, there will be magic with a large dusting of charisma from the 11 stars.
They say too when you get Stardust in your eyes it causes a pleasant dream-like feeling, and the surest way to make a dream come true is to live them, and with this production playing weekly throughout the year, you get to see first-hand, something that, One Way or Another, will bring this show to life with humour & heart, colouring your world!
It takes a great team to organise and orchestrate a successful theatre production, and Stardust will be no exception. 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 cast performing on the Babbacombe boards will be looking to exceed audiences’ expectations throughout the year.

Aladdin P!ssed Up Panto
Friday 21st April 7.30pm
Have you ever watched a pantomime and wondered what mischief the cast would get up to if there weren’t any children in the audience? What happens when the cast have had one-too-many? Now’s your chance to find out.
This special one-off performance will not be for the faint-hearted-it’s panto as you’ve never seen it before. The hilarious production is packed to the brim full of innuendo, hilarious comedy routines, parodies of well-known songs and audience participation, creating a performance that’s sure to be hilarious, cheeky, saucy and sometimes just a little bit naughty...okay...very naughty!
Along with all the usual adult panto fun, the audience vote each night for the one performer who must complete savage drinking challenges throughout the show. As the victim gets slowly more and more sozzled, they must, along with the rest of the cast, keep the show rolling onto its happy climax.
Starring a whole host of experienced, professional pantomime performers, and one or two professional drinkers, alongside a dazzling ensemble cast, stunning scenery, great music and side-splitting comedy routines this is a night that audiences will remember for the rest of their lives.
