A popular musical show and big screen entertainment will feature at the Marina Theatre in the week ahead.

Kicking off the jam packed schedule on Friday, May 4 is Menopause the Musical.

Starring Cheryl Fergison (EastEnders), Maureen Nolan (The Nolans), Rebecca Wheatley (Casualty) and Hilary O’Neil (ITV’s Copy Cats) this hysterical show is packed full of one-liners and parody songs about hot flushes and memory loss.

The fun starts at 7.30pm, with full price tickets costing £28, concessions £27, Privilege Card £25.

Attention then turns to the big screen as the film Walk Like a Panther is showcased twice, at 2.30pm and 7.30pm, on Saturday, May 5.

The big screen entertainment continues as The Bridges of Madison County (12) is shown at 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Monday, May 7.

World-travelling National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid and Iowa housewife Francesca Johnson aren’t looking to turn their lives upside down.

The film is the second in the theatre’s mini-series celebrating Meryl Streep with the £4.50 ticket price including a standard tea or coffee. Terms and conditions apply.

An event that is already proving popular at the theatre’s box office is The Greatest Showman Sing-Along (PG), which will be shown at 2.30pm and 7.30pm on May 8.

The world is singing along with the most entertaining movie of the year and now you can too with this special sing-along screening of The Greatest Showman – the Golden Globe winner for Best Original Song. Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams and Zendaya star in this stunning musical with songs by the Academy Award-winning songwriters behind La La Land.

The week finishes with a screening of Macbeth (12A as live), from National Theatre Live, at 7pm on May 10.

Shakespeare’s most intense and terrifying tragedy, directed by Rufus Norris (The Threepenny Opera, London Road), will see Rory Kinnear (Young Marx, Othello) and Anne-Marie Duff (Oil, Suffragette) return to the National Theatre to play Macbeth and Lady Macbeth – all seats £10.
