Why go and see it?

With a feelgood factor built in, this show really does have something for everyone!

In 1963, Roy Orbison performed for the first time at The Adelphi in Slough – in December 2018, Barry Steele performed at The Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End.

Production shot

In 1988 Roy Orbison joined ‘The Traveling Wilburys.’- in Barry Steele and Friends, the whole cast comes together to create an incredible fusion of Rock n roll as they truly capture the essence of this original supergroup. 

True identikit Brilliance
- The Stage

Chris Isaak collected many awards on behalf of The Orbison Family – he also recorded many of Roy Orbison’s songs – in Barry Steele and Friends, the compliment is returned with stunning versions of global smash hits ‘Blue Hotel’ and ‘Wicked Game’

In 2017, Roy Orbison classics were re-mastered by The Philharmonic Orchestra! – Barry Steele and Friends proudly present their versions of these masterpieces. In 2019 – thanks to the wonders of technology, Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly shared the stage as the Hologram tour toured the world. This year our very own ‘brown-eyed handsome man’ joins many of our shows. 

So do you think you know what is in Barry Steele and Friends?  We can assure you it is a bit different! It's quite simply 100% Top Class Entertainment.

The Princess Theatre first opened its doors on Wednesday 7 June 1961. Top of the bill on the opening night were the late, great Tommy Cooper and the legendary Morecombe & Wise.  In 1963 The Beatles appeared live on stage singing the then newly released single “She Loves You” causing some hysteria in the town! 

The Princess Theatre is South Devon’s largest theatre with a seating capacity of 1,491.  Big musical productions that have thrilled our audiences include Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Chicago, Starlight Express, Rocky Horror, Cats, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Icons of the stage and screen Sir Roger Moore, Elaine Page, Joan Collins and the beloved Joan Rivers, have also graced our stage. Comedians Jimmy Carr, Alan Carr and Dawn French have performed here too and chart toppers Mumford & Sons, Jamie Cullum and Ronan Keating have included the theatre on their UK tours.
