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

Friday 1st June – 7.30pm – An Evening with Manchester United Legends – Two Manchester United legends grace the stage at the Memorial Theatre in Frome to talk about their brilliant careers at Manchester United.

Friday 8th June -7.30pm. Best of Wham! A ‘fantastic’ new show featuring the best of George, Andrew, Pepsi and Shirlie with sensational vocals, choreography, costumes and an awesome live band.

Can it really be 37 years since George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley formed one of the most enduring pop groups of the 80s? In four short years WHAM! sold more than 28 million records, topping the charts with three albums, four number one singles and 11 top ten hits. They featured in the Live Aid concert of 1985 and were the first Western pop group to ever tour in China. Their impact and influence on the 80s era and music today really cannot be over emphasised. The Best of WHAM! show includes all those hits, a few B side favourites and a couple of early George Michael bonus songs. This fun-loving, vibrant, megamix tribute to the pop sensation of the 80s will be loved by ‘Young Guns’ of all ages, so come along to the ‘Club Tropicana’ (*Sorry. Drinks not free.) Tickets £22.50

Friday 22nd & Saturday 23rd June – 7.30pm. That’ll Be The Day. The UK’s premier Rock & Roll production That’ll Be The Day returns with another brand new show! Highly acclaimed for its stunning live entertainment value, That’ll Be The Day is an outstanding celebration for all true fans of the golden era of popular music.

This latest production features a fantastic new-line-up of smash hits spanning the 50s, 60s and 70s, plus more side-splitting comic sketches, all performed live on-stage! Prepare for an unforgettable night of nostalgia, laughs and Rock ‘n’ Roll.  Tickets £25

Saturday 30th June 10am – 1pm. Theatre Open Day. Humphrey Barnes                                                                                                       Chairman of FMTT explains, “As many of your readers are aware, the Frome Memorial Theatre is run entirely by volunteers and we have successfully been doing so for the past 35 years.

“Once a year we open our theatre and the Assembly Rooms, offering talks on the history, where we are now and where we see our future.

“Our open day this year is Saturday June 30th 10.00am – 1.00pm and we would welcome anyone who may be interested at having a closer look at our theatre and perhaps join us as a volunteer. We need additional help in marketing, box office, stewarding, confectionery kiosk, maintenance and back stage.

The theatre is a registered charity with trustees, perhaps you would like to become a trustee? Come and talk to us over a cup of coffee on the 30th June.
