WEEKLY - every Tuesday & Wednesdays until 24th October incl. 8.15pm. Matinee: Wednesday 22nd August 2.30pm




Illuminate your day with -  Starshine.

Featuring an array of talented performers who share one common purpose to ‘Entertain you’, the all new show for 2018, Starshine, promises an abundance of side - splitting comedy, powerful vocalists delivering dynamic songs and elegant dancers who are endlessly energetic.

The ENTERTAINMENT factor is paramount to the successes of the productions at Babbacombe Theatre, as is the artistic and creative flair of the show’s producer and director, Colin Matthews. Colin has produced all the shows at the venue since 1986, and the venue is accredited with the number 1 ranking on TripAdvisor, due to the success of his productions.

The headlining act is no stranger to the Babbacombe Theatre. Ben Nickless is the man with many voices….and quick changes. Whilst still only a child he knew there was, ‘No Business like Showbusiness’ albeit he hadn’t anticipated that he would become one of the UK’s most successful comedy impressionists with his energetic, visual and hilarious act.

Other popular performers, returning to the stage are, West End vocalist Paul Cobley, the much-travelled songstress, Becky Bennett, and Sami-Jane, who is as adept at interpreting a pop song as she is the most opulent of arias. You will undoubtedly agree, when singing in unison, the impact they make is nothing short of breath-taking!

Newcomers, this season, are funny man David Arnold, the loveable Welshman, and international illusionist, Matricks, AKA, Alexander Jesson. Expect elements of danger, magic, comedy and charm, from these naturally born showmen. Also look out for them as they join Ben & Paul to take on the guise of TV favourites, recognised worldwide within popular culture.

Starshine, celebrates the musicals, enjoys highlights from popular movies as well as tributes to some of the most iconic pop stars, including Michael Jackson, who would have turned 60 this year.                    

As everyone knows it takes a great team to organise and orchestrate a successful variety show, and Starshine is no exception. Danze Chique, the resident team of dancers, are a bevy of gorgeous young ladies who continue to raise the standard every season.  Their commitment to interpreting the dynamic choreography of Georgie Lee, working in harmony with the exciting musical arrangements of Pete Leonard is always paramount to the shows successes, as is the contribution made by our junior cast. Shiny Starz and our General Manager, Sharon Waring, who ensures all the cast dazzle, with the amazing costumes that come from across the globe. An aspect many of our regular patron’s delight in.

Audiences have come to expect a theatre experience that is magical and memorable, and everyone involved with Starshine hopes your evening meets all your expectations.
