A message from our Theatre Director regarding the very sad passing of Bobby Ball

Posted on 29 October 2020

‘Along with so many other people we were deeply saddened to hear the news of the passing of legendary Comedian, Actor and Writer, Bobby Ball as a result of contracting Coronavirus. Bobby and partner, Tommy were no strangers to the Playhouse and were due to be here with us in February next year for ‘An Audience with Cannon & Ball’. Off stage Bobby was every bit as warm and funny as his stage persona and he will be hugely missed. We will contact ticketholders over the coming days, but for now please join us in offering our sincere condolences to his family and all those close to him'.


Phil Smith – Playhouse Theatre Director
