The Marina Theatre in Lowestoft welcomes comedy favourites Eric Potts and Damian Williams as they perform Doctor in the Huose at Lowestoft's Marina Theatre from Wednesday.

The Marina Theatre in Lowestoft presents X Factor finalists Journey South tonight at 7.30pm.

After narrowly missing the top spot they were snapped up by Simon Cowell and released their platinum selling self-titled debut album which entered the UK charts at No 1.

The Marina has films for all the family this week beginning tomorrow with a special matinee of Dr Seuss's Horton Hears a Who! (U) at 2.30pm. Loveable elephant Horton lives in the jungle with his animal friends, but his life is turned upside down when he discovers the microscopic world of Who-ville. After discovering the fate of Who-ville lies in his hands Horton embarks on a journey to the mountain at the skyline.

The Marina also presents Flashbacks of a Fool (15) tomorrow at 7.30pm starring 007 Daniel Craig as a washed up Hollywood star forced to face his youth after the death of his best friend. He experiences flashbacks of his younger years and a summer of tragedy that changed his life forever.

Returning by popular demand on Sunday is the nation's favourite rock 'n' roll show, That'll be the Day which has been touring for over 20 years. Now the show returns with new music for 2008. Singer songwriter Isla Grant follows on Monday at 7.30pm with an evening of country, folk and Irish favourites. One of the UK's best-loved singer songwriters, she is a major star both in her native Scotland and beyond, particularly in Ireland where she has outsold U2.

And on the big screen on Tuesday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson star in The Other Boleyn Girl (12a). This tale of romance and betrayal set against a historic backdrop presents two sisters fighting for the love of the King of England. But despite the dramatic rivalry the girls ultimately find loyalty in each other.

Comedy favourites Eric Potts and Damian Williams return from Wednesday with classic comedy Doctor in the House running for four days until next Saturday.

The production follows a young medical student in his internship under head surgeon Sir Lancelot Sprat.

The original books by Richard Gorden spawned not only several successful plays by Ted Willis, but also a series of films and TV series lasting over a decade.

The film version was the most successful film in Great Britain in 1954 and starred Dirk Bogarde, James Robertson Justice, Kenneth More, Donald Sinden and a young Joan Sims. Performances run nightly at 7.30pm with a special matinee at 2.30pm next Saturday.
