Brilliant show with great songs and dances. Comfortable seats with all round view. The Crucible is always a good venue as it is spacious and you don't feel as though the other people i the audience are sitting on top of you.

There's a bar for pre theatre drinks and intervals. Would recommend for couples, families, singles anyone really depending on... More

Whilst the Main House at the Crucible plays host to nearly a thousand, the intimacy of the Studio within the building brings you in almost touching distance of the players ..Actors, musicians Sitting all around the action, one is completely involved For chamber music, there can be no finer "chamber"! The resident group of star musicians is appropriately called Ensemble... More

The cast and crew were first class and got the audience well involved which is what a pantomime is all about. All the children and adults looked like they enjoyed themselves to... More

Always a great place for a visit. The shows are always first rate and you get a good view of the performing area wherever you sit. Nice ambience around the theatre outside with wine bars . Give it a go!

This theatre truly is a crucible, with amazing performances taking centre stage. You feel so involved and engaged in all the performances. One of my favourite places.
