Message from the Marine Theatre
This week in Lyme Regis we are not satisfied with just one top notch event, or two. In three exciting performances, we will be leaping back to the sixties before catapulting into the naughties then jetting off to Australia.
On Friday we have The Fab Beatles. This authentic, sought-after act is widely regarded as the ultimate tribute to the Beatles. Follow this link if you want to be transported back in time: http://www.fabbeatles.com/videos.php.
If you’re thinking of missing it, You Can’t do That. If you’ve got friends staying, Come Together. If you’ve got no one to come along with, that’s OK because I Want to Hold your Hand. So take the Magical Mystery Tour down The Long and Winding Road to Lyme Regis for a night of Beatles mania.That was exhausting!
Then on Saturday we’ve got award winning Platinum selling artist Sandi Thom. It’s been six years since her debut album ‘Smile...It Confuses People’ and the massive hit single ‘I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker’ both raced to the top of the UK charts on the way to combined sales to date of about 2 million albums worldwide.
Following her last release, the critically acclaimed, award winning blues album 'Merchants & Thieves', Sandi Thom is back with a new album - 'FLESH & BLOOD'. Catch her now before her tour roles on to Australia. Here’s that famous earworm again. Warning! You’ll being singing it on loop for hours: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc2jDz6w-r4
Sunday sees nationally loved theatre company Travelling Light arrive with their production Pobby and Dingan.
Pobby and Dingan are Kellyanne’s best friends, maybe her only friends. Her brother Ashmol hates them. They’re invisible and they make her act weird. And it’s no fun having a fruitloop for a sister.
A production based on Ben Rice’s acclaimed debut novel about how one boy's mission to save his family unites an Australian outback opal-mining community, this is a funny and heartbreaking story about love, loyalty and the enduring power of the imagination. Here’s the trailer: https://vimeo.com/51989840
Lyn Gardner says in the Guardian:
This company understands that creating theatre for the very young is like playing a game, but one that you must play every second of as if it's real.
Lyn... we couldn’t agree with you more!
