Story posted on

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

Saturday 13th October 7.30- Divorced, Beheaded, Died – An Audience with King Henry VIII at The Assembly Rooms. The year is 1544 and King Henry, the Eighth of that name, is engaged upon Royal Progress about his Realm; and has halted here to afford his Loyal Subjects the opportunity to have ‘audience’ with their Sovereign Lord and King. The King, recently married to his new, and sixth, wife, Queen Catherine Parr, is in poor health; his leg continues to cause him considerable pain and he is often in a poor humour!

In the course of the ‘audience’, His Majesty will recount the events of his  long reign; telling of his wives and his children, and His Majesty will invite his Loyal Subjects to Petition him or question him on ANY related subject; there may be some surprising answers – a lively Q&A is assured! Tickets £12, concessions £10

Friday 19th October  7.30pm- Jackson Live Starring CJ. Michael Jackson is not only remembered as one of the most influential artists of all time, but many of today’s artists have been inspired by his iconic style. His career spanned nearly five decades of music, and he was continually at the forefront of popular music.   Jackson Live in Concert now features the hugely talented ‘CJ’ recreating the Michael Jackson experience with his stunning rendition of all his favourite songs. ‘CJ’ is one of the most experienced, dedicated and well-respected Michael Jackson tribute artists in the world today, and he perfectly captures the electrifying energy of Michael’s live performances with 100% live vocals. He’s got the look, the moonwalk and the voice! His renditions of Thriller, Beat It and Billie Jean are truly sensational. 

Jackson Live in Concert brings together superb musicians and dancers, fabulous costumes, and of course all the signature dance moves associated so fondly with the undisputed King of Pop. Pure MJ! Tickets £22, OAPs £21, Under 16s £18. The full story is over page.
