Venue overview

First opening in 1961, acts such as Tommy Cooper and Morecambe and Wise were topping the bill at the Princess Theatre. Built by Torbay Council as part of the redevelopment of the Princess Gardens on the seafront, the building replaced an annual marquee that hosted light variety entertainment. Over the years, the Princess Theatre has been managed by several different companies whilst under the continued maintenance of the council. In 1991, the building was leased to Apollo Leisure and was then taken over by SFX and Clear Channel Entertainment. In 2009, ATG bought the theatre and manage it to this date.

The Princess Theatre is Torbay’s largest venue, with a seating capacity of 1,491. Known for hosting large-scale touring productions, the theatre has housed all varieties of entertainment, including ballet, opera, concerts and West End musicals. Past productions have included Chicago, Starlight Express and Sunny Afternoon. The auditorium is expansive and comfortable, offering excellent sight-lines due to the modernity of the venue. Split across two levels, the Stalls is the largest section of the theatre, with a huge seating capacity of 1,086. The Circle seats around 420.

Good value seats

Views are excellent throughout the auditorium of the Princess Theatre. Seats are generally good value for money, as the modernity of the theatre allows for unobstructed views. Sitting in the front of the Circle is good value for large scale productions, as is sitting mid-centre of the Stalls. Sitting in the rear of the Stalls offers good views for cheaper prices.

Premium seats

Premium seats are located in the front-centre of the Stalls and Circle. Sitting towards the front of the Stalls in rows C-H often offers the best views.

Seats quite creaky so you fear making noise during quiet scenes, I'm quite tall and found my knees were quite cramped but not the worst seat I've ever sat in comfort-wise! The view of the stage can't be faulted with the price I paid! Saw everything! More

Fantastic view. Leg room was fine being 5'2, however the gentlemen next to us was restricted. The row behind had much more leg room. Outstanding view, pleasantly surprised. Lovely theatre & very comfortable seats. Only downside - very very warm! More

This seat was very cheap so it was fantastic value for money. The legroom was amazing and the seat was comfortable just a bit squeaky. The view was okay, I could see all of the main stage without having to lean forward but the wooden barrier to the stairs... More
