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.
