A THEATRE company for adults with learning difficulties takes centre stage at the Seagull next week.

Fabba's productions Fabba Mia and Oz have been great successes in the past and now they will be returning to the Pakefield theatre with Macbeth and the Crown of Doom.

The performers have been working hard on voice projection, improvisation and emotion since March and, with many new members onboard, they are looking forward to presenting their latest show.

“It was initially going to be a review to showcase these skills, but has since morphed into a production of Macbeth, which has been adapted to bring out the best performances,” said Carolyn Baker. “And of course no Fabba show would be complete without a few zany musical and dance numbers.”

Director Will Isgrove said: “We have taken Shakespeare's classic tale of ambition, witches and the price of power and transformed into a B-movie style serial adventure.”

Fabba is a self-funding group and ticket sales go towards their October production, which will be Ghostbusters.

Macbeth and the Crown of Doom will be performed on Thursday at 2pm and next Friday and Saturday at 7.30pm.

Before this, the Seagull hosts the final performances of SM Productions' A murder is announced.

Lesley Darbon's adaptation of the classic Agatha Christie murder mystery is performed at 2pm today and 7.30pm tomorrow.

On Sunday at 7.30pm, there will be the eagerly anticipated return of Paul Phoenix in Elvis: what if?

The entirely revamped production sees Elvis Presley revisit his emotional life through the magic of theatre, sharing stories, album tracks, ballads, rock and roll hits, and rare film footage.

Looking ahead, tickets are selling fast for the return of the Seagull Rep's Fawlty Towers. The classic show will be performed from August 13-21.
