a tiny puppet theatre, with lovely shows and a super atmosphere. You almost feel as if you are a part of the show! Great for the kids, too, when the weather is not so good - but even on a good day, it's great for...More

A real find, a quirky little theatre with a well-scripted and performed play; two actors, three parts each, very entertaining.

Just been to the Boathouse Theatre to see their latest WhoDunnit, and absolutely loved it. A funny, clever, witty plot, brilliantly acted, and in a fantastic little venue too. If you want a fun night out in St Ives, I wholeheartedly recommend it!

Six of us went for some light entertainment and we were not disappointed. Excellent! Well acted, funny and wonderfully produced in a tiny space. We were impressed, not to be missed.

Really enjoyed this great little play. Don't worry I won't tell you who did it. You must go and experience it for yourself. You are really up close with the brilliant actors and the time goes much to quick. It's a MUST do in St.Ives.

My (grown up) daughter and I had a marvellous visit to this theatre, an early evening trip to see WHODUNNIT. The clever cast had us spellbound as they amused and thrilled us with a detective story with a Cabaret twist. All in the comfy but...More

What an entertaining hour at the Boathouse. We have never experienced anything like this production. The intimate theatre was really special. Very good fun but professional and engaging. The hour just flew by. This venue and its performances should be in the top 5 of...More

We attended the wonderfully entertaining new Farce at the Boathouse Theatre last night - very amusing & well worth seeing! Congratulations to Jason & the team - we wish you every success for the season, and look forward to another 'Fancy Dress, Murder & Steak'...More
