Psychics and the 60s vibe are coming to the Memorial Theatre this Spring!

It’s going to be a busy time at the Memorial in May, with a great selection of entertainment on offer this Spring.

It’s true to say Derek Acorah needs no introduction. A celebrity, author and performer like no other, Derek is one of the foremost names in the world of Psychic Phenomena and visits the theatre on Friday 1st May. For decades his theatre shows have sold out across the world as thousands flock to experience a very special event.

Derek’s brand new Tour ‘Psychic Ether’ will appear at venues across the UK and Europe throughout 2015.

A delicious two course meal is available in the Assembly Rooms before this performance.

Frome Musical Theatre Company welcomes you to the 1960’s with the wonderful upbeat musical, ‘Hairspray!’ from Tuesday 12th May to Saturday 16th May. Evening performances are at 7.30pm plus matinee on Saturday 16th May at 2.30pm.

It’s June 1962 in Baltimore where plus-sized teenager Tracy Turnblad is obsessed with The Corny Collins Show and one of its dancers, Link Larkin.

Though rejected by producer Velma Von Tussle at auditions, when Tracy shows off some moves at the Sophomore Hop, Corny Collins gives her a place on the show. Tracy is soon launched to stardom, but can’t stand that the show won’t allow integration and does everything in her power to make it happen.

With wonderful musical numbers such as ‘Good Morning Baltimore’ – ‘You’re Timeless to Me’ and the showstopper, ‘You Can’t Stop The Beat’, this is one not to be missed!!!

In May, comedy legend Jimmy Tarbuck, OBE visits the theatre on Saturday 30th at 7.30pm; Tickets £19.50; followed by Marty Wilde & The Wildcats on Friday 5th June at 7.30pm. Tickets are £20.
