The show goes on at last at the Babbacombe Theatre.

The previous SuperStars opened in February last year, but only got to run for five weeks, due to the pandemic.

But Producer/Director Colin Matthews has reworked SuperStars 2021 with Steve Laister headlining the show every Tuesday and Wednesday from May 18 to October 20 at 8.15pm.

The new show will feature some of the most iconic stars of music, stage and screen, performed by a multi-talented cast, that will embrace the comedic talents of Del Boy, Stavros Flatley and Benny Hill also with songs from stunning movie soundtracks and/or stage shows with numbers from, Les Misérables, 9-5, Hairspray, Jersey Boys, Grease and Burlesque.

Theatre goers will also be introduced to some new unique comedic characters courtesy of the 'Sir Norman Wisdom's Award for ‘Comedy Excellence' winner Steve, who is as equally poised as a singer as he is a comedian.

Also hitting the high notes in a show that celebrates celebrity, is West End Vocalist, Paul Cobley, multi-talented Wayne Martin, singing sensation Lindsey Collard, Sami-Jane who is as adept at interpreting a pop hit as she is the most dramatic show song and the Nicest Kids in Town, ‘Cute Kidz’, who are three little girls ready to share their dreams of stardom.

The Danze Chique, a bevy of young ladies, will be embellishing the Babbacombe boards with exciting choreography from international Choreographer Wesley Waring accompanied by the musical accompaniment and orchestrations of Musical Director, Pete Leonard.
