Although small this is a lovely little theatre which is quite diverse in what it shows. From musicals to comedians to plays there is something for every taste. I saw Julian Clary here as well as Elkie Brookes, The Drifters, The Dubliners and a variety of plays. The theatre has a bar also.

I always love a good Panto before Christmas with the children and this year we chose Aladdin at St Helens Theatre as my friend told me how great there Panto was in 2015. When we first booked the tickets we were met by an older woman who did not appear to happy to have been disturbed from doing nothing. I... More

Ordering Tickets the week before the show, the ladies in the ticket office gave a very warm welcome and were extremely helpful. Inside the theatre staff ushered us to our seats, where we sat during a very good performance of Aladdin. (During intervals more toilets required due to numbers - however still a very good venue for a pantomime)

The standard of the theatre is maintained and clean and I've seen some improvements over the years especially in reception. The bar needs improvements and bringing up to date especially with the prices and I always feel like the staff don't know what's happening.

Good view from the circle but it is quite high compared to some others I have been in. I think the venue could advise on parking a little better. There was a good interval bar service but luckily drinks could be taken into thauditorium as the bar was freezing cold. Old style toilets also resulted in two ladies almost being... More

Well worth a visit. An excellent little theatre. I have seen three different productions in the last six months and each one has been outstanding. Most recent being Twopence To Cross the Mersey, brilliant performance. The productions they put on are very reasonably priced compared to Manchester and Liverpool.

The theatre itself is badly in need of refurbishment. However, I will definitely go again because the standard of the performance of this play was outstanding. The stage set was ingenious and the characterisation by the players was faultless. I really enjoyed myself and consider this theatre something of a find. I

This is quite a nice little theatre. It's a bit shabby but otherwise ok. The production we went to see was good and we enjoyed it. The cost of sweets, drinks and ice cream was extortionate. Nothing more than daylight robbery. 3 x small ice cream tubs = £7.50 1 Fanta orange, 2 small peanuts & 1 pkt Werthers =... More
