What an exceptional evening “Starlight” was on Wednesday (also available on Tuesday) of this week. The whole cast were brilliant: I don’t want to single out 1 person in particular but the comic compare was brilliant: can’t wait to see Steve on TV. This was a very funny (and nostalgic) show for “the over 50’ish audience” I, in my 70’s am not easily amused, or so my wife tells everyone: but this show is very, very (OK so you get it) funny. A must if you are anywhere near. Miss it at your peril !!!!!!!!

Went last night to see Starlight at the Babbacombe theatre and can tell you it was an absolute delight. The comedy parts were hilarious, the singing wonderful, the dancing very good and the children were absolutely adorable. Well done to the full company.

Another great show at the Babbacombe Theatre. ' Starlight'. Good old fashioned seaside variety show, brilliantly done. Cracking dancers, very funny Steve Laister with great supporting cast of singers. My partner and I always visit the Babbacombe Theatre when we stay in Torquay and the variety shows never fail to delight. This years production is one of the best. Well done to all - well be back.

what a fantastic evening we had visiting the Starlight show on Tuesday 7th June .We laughed and clapped from start to finish. The cast encourage audience participation. The whole company had tremendous voices. The dancing was so enthusiastic and the three younger cast members have their own smaller act which was done so brilliantly. It was so nice to get back to live theatre. lynn and tony nottingham

I have just been to the Jubilee Show at the Babbacombe Theatre, put on by Steve Laister and I have to say that it was one of the best shows I have ever seen. The mixture of songs from the last 70 years and the comedy gave the audience an afternoon to remember. We were all encouraged to join in with the songs which made it a really special event and brought a tear to my eye more than once. Congratulations to all concerned.

WOW, what a fabulous show! It was special from the moment we stepped into the theatre and were given complementary song sheets & flags. Steve Laister did a great job as usual, covering songs from all era’s and delighting the audience with his humour. Lindsey & Holly were brilliant, Phil Doyle made us laugh and Steve who provided the music was outstanding. All their efforts were very much appreciated by the audience who were on their feet in the second half singing along and waving their flags. A very enjoyable afternoon remembering comedy & songs.

The cast worked so hard to make this such a magical show and with all of their talent they did not disappoint for a single second. Thank you for your amazing review and we very much hope you'll join Steve and the cast again soon. Kind Regards Babbacombe Theatre
