DAMIAN Williams returns to the Marina Theatre, in Lowestoft, this week with the hilarious farce Who Goes Bare? which has its final performances tonight and tomorrow.

He plays Eddie Manchip, owner of a somewhat ailing country health club, in a decaying country mansion.

When Eddie signs away the deeds of the house to a sinister crook, in payment of his gambling debts, chaos ensues. Soon, his staff desert, leaving only a half-witted, hysterical maid to keep company with his erring and pompous brother and suspicious wife, a tennis player with a habit of removing her clothes, thinking it is a nudist colony, her kilted Scottish husband and a hearty Oxfam volunteer who simply "collects" any clothing left unguarded. The production also stars Jacqueline Roberts and Andrew Ryan.

On Sunday is The Sensational 60's Experience. Hosted by Steve Walls and featuring The Tremeloes (Here Comes My Baby, Helule Helule and Silence Is Golden), The Marmalade (Reflections of My Life, Ob La Di Ob La Da) and The Dreamers (I Love You Baby and You Were Made For Me). The show presents over 30 hits performed by three of the most influential bands of their time.

On the Marina big screen from Monday are the films Fame (PG), Funny People (15) and Creation (PG).

For more information or to book seats call the box office on 01502 533200.

Meanwhile, films at the Hollywood Cinema, in Lowestoft, feature a selection of brand new family movies.

Based on Roald Dahl's famous children's book Fantastic Mr Fox (PG) stars the voices of George Clooney and Meryl Streep while Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (12a) focuses on the story of 16 year-old Darren (Chris Massogolia) who, bored of his life, falls in with a bunch of odd characters in a famous freak show but he soons finds himself caught in the middle of a 200-year-old war.

And from Wednesday two more big movies arrive in the shape of Michael Jackson's 'This is it' (PG), the film of the concert that wasn't to be and '9' (12a) a animated film produced by Tim Burton (A Nightmare Before Xmas and The Corpse Bride) and directed by Shane Acker.
