A fantastic theatre, very high standard of productions, we’ve loved & enjoyed all our visits, sadly very disappointed in ‘ONCE’ which we saw last night! But we’ll continue to go to most shows!

Fabulous Show

The shows are always fantastic and Ladies Night was no exception. A must. The only downside is the pizza. Wood fired pizza - great, but when I order a Margherita pizza I do expect bazillion, not basil paste. Fries were delicious.

The leading lady in the cast was awesome with such a total and exquisit score to remember and her presentation was truly 1st class. A Street Car names Desire was everything the critics have said about it.

Superb as usual from Court theatre. Well cast, great costumes and scenery.

Production was well paced and very enjoyable story lines.

Always worth the effort to go to the Court theatre.

Theatre experience wonderful

We mad e a night of it by going an hour early to have a wood fired pizza with salt and rosemary hot chips accompanied by a Giesens Pinot noir followed by an excellent performance of Mums Choir. The Court Theatre always have amazing productions worthy of seeing. At half time we had a cocktail of a chocolate fush which was a yummy half time drink.
