A TV talent show contestant will front a production dedicated to one of pop’s most influential groups.

Showing at the Marina Theatre in Lowestoft, The Best of Wham! is set to entertain audiences at 7.30pm on Saturday, February 24.

Performing as George Michael will be Craig Webb, who shot to fame last year after appearing on Gary Barlow’s Let It Shine competition on BBC One and made it to the quarter-finals.

In just four years Wham! sold more than 28 million records, achieving three chart-topping albums and four number one singles including ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ and ‘I’m Your Man’.

Julie Sweeney, co-founder of the show’s touring company Sweeney Entertainments, said: “We’re thrilled to be presenting this amazing new show to venues across the UK. This is a non-stop party that is sure to leave audiences singing and dancing.”

To book tickets, priced at £21.50, visit the Marina Theatre website or call the box office on 01502 533200.
