THEATRE

WESTON

The Playhouse, High Street - call 01934 645544.

Until Oct 30: My Fair Lady. Weston Operatic Society present Lerner and Loewe’s spectacular, one of the best known and best loved of all the stage musicals. Come and enjoy all the wonderful songs that are so familiar, as a talented cast of seasoned regulars and exciting newcomers bring the musical version of Shaw’s play Pygmalion to life on the stage.

Oct 31: Charlie Landsborough. Sometimes folk, sometimes country, sometimes rock ‘n’ roll, sometimes gospel; Charlie is hard to categorise. Having won just about every award in the UK country scene however, he is undoubtedly an immensely talented performer who is not to be missed.

Nov 3: Maximum Rhythm ‘n’ Blues. An all-star line up featuring The Manfreds with original members Paul Jones, Mike D’Abo, Tom McGuinness and Mike Hugg and their special guests Alan Price and Cliff Bennett.

Nov 4: Robin Hood (film). Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett and William Hurt star in Ridley Scott’s stunning movie about the untold story of the man behind the legend.

Nov 5: Marty Wilde. Original ‘dreamboats’, Marty Wilde, Eden Kane, and Jet Harris, along with Roxy Wilde and the Wildcats, join forces in a spectacular show that will prove they were simply born to rock ‘n’ roll.

Nov 6: The Vagina Monologues. Based on author Eve Ensler’s ‘Vagina Interviews’ conducted with women from all around the world, this hilariously witty and moving collection of tales gives voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant, brave and thoroughly human stories.

Nov 7: Joe Longthorne. The internationally known singer and vocal impressionist, whose big break came in 1981 when he was a finalist on London Weekend Television’s Search for a Star, returns in his latest stage spectacular.

Nov 9: Rich Hall. Edinburgh fringe favourite and Perrier Award winner Rich Hall has most recently been seen wowing audiences at both Channel 4’s ‘Comedy Gala’ at the O2 and at the Comedy Benefit at the Royal Albert Hall. Rich will be performing in his usual style as the grouchy, deadpan comic genius.

BATH

Theatre Royal, Sawclose: Box office - 01225 448844.

Until Oct 31: Ben Hur. Imagine legions of Roman soldiers on the march, a journey across deserts, a battle fought on the high seas and all the danger and thrilling atmosphere of a chariot race. In an event which will surpass belief, a huge cast, including a prodigious choir, will create one of the most visually exciting and theatrically impressive productions your family is ever likely to see.

Nov 3-13: Blithe Spirit. When Blithe Spirit opened in 1941 it played for over 2,000 performances and it has been one of the world’s favourite comedies ever since. Its razor-sharp wit and wonderful characters have continued to raise spirits both in the audience and on stage. Coward’s supernatual classic now plays Bath prior to a West End opening. Alison Steadman stars.
