THE Memorial Theatre lineup is jam-packed with music and entertainment for the coming weeks.

On Thursday 3rd – Saturday 5th August FMTC Spellbound present CATS.

Join the award winning youth group Spellbound as they introduce you to a menagerie of cats on the night of the infamous Jellicle Ball.

Old Deuteronomy must decide which one of these remarkable cats gets to make their journey to the Heavy Side Layer and be reborn into a new Jellicle life.

This Andrew Lloyd-Webber classic based on T S Eliot’s ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’ features well known songs and loveable characters, but is most well loved for Grizabella’s ‘Memory.’

On Saturday 19th August at 7.30pm Rock ‘n’ Roll Paradise returns to the UK’s theatres for the 8th successive year but in a new and exciting format.

For the first time ever the show’s producers are not disclosing ‘who’ will be performing at each show, but they are promising that no two performances will be the same, and each show will be crammed full with the country’s best tributes to rock ‘n’ roll’s stars, performing the very best songs ever written and supported by the explosively dynamic Paradise Band.

Amongst those ‘appearing’ will be Gene Vincent, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bill Haley, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, The Everly Brothers, Neil Sedaka, The Big Bopper, Carl Perkins, Del Shannon, Eddie Cochran, Ritchie Valens and even the king himself – Elvis …… the question is, who will you be lucky enough to see?

Tickets are £21, Over 60s & under 16s £20.

The UK’s No1 celebration of Johnny Cash, fronted by award winning singer/songwriter Clive John, re-creates with astounding accuracy and truly captures the essence of what it was like to be at a real Cash show! Also featuring ‘June Carter’ and the ‘Carter Sisters’ (on selected shows) along with the ‘Roadshow Horns’ all aspects of Cash’s life are covered with impeccable taste.

The show takes the audience from the 1950’s right up to 2002 and all the stops in between. All the greatest hits are included, along with unmissable songs from every one of the five decade’s that the Man in Black’s career spanned. All this accompanied by evocative screen images and shots from Johnny Cash’s life.
