An amateur dramatics group will perform a medley of hit songs from the world of musical theatre, and Mercury readers could win tickets to the show.

Worle Operatic and Dramatic Society's (WODS) Musical Theatre Company will perform One Day Only, a musical extravaganza with two shows at the Playhouse, in High Street, on August 25 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

Audiences will be toe-tapping and dancing in the aisles as the group performs a veritable smorgasbord of songs from the world of musical theatre including We Will Rock You, Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Oliver, all accompanied by a live orchestra.

Performers will also be joined on stage by their junior group, Spectrum Musical Theatre.

This is a long-realised dream for the society as it gives them the chance to sing songs from musicals not available as a full production.

Director Blair Ruddick is looking forward to make a return to Weston's biggest theatre later this month

He said: "It's been non-stop this year.
