Princess Theatre Info

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.
