Great production. Must see. Well done Regent for getting this show to Ipswich. We had a stocking evening. I also look forward to your major improvements next year to update this much needed facility in the town.

Yes you can, the prices for ice creams and dinks were quite good for a theatre, we had small tub of ice cream cost £2.50 and a pint of beer was £4. I hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did.
