TONIGHT, Lowestoft Marina Theatre presents a special tribute to super pop groups Abba and the Bee Gees with Thank You For The Music.

Now in its 17th year the production is packed with classic Abba songs including Mamma Mia, Super Trouper, Dancing Queen and number one hits from the Bee Gees including Stayin’ Alive, Night Fever and Massachusetts.

On Saturday the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra presents the final concert in its sixth year of residency with the theatre. The concert, conducted by Robert Zeigler and featuring soloist Chloe Hanslip (violin) includes works by Glinka, Beethoven & Dvorak. Glinka’s rollicking Ruslan & Lyudmila Overture is a showpiece for orchestra with its breathtaking tempo and rhythm, Beethoven’s Violin Concerto provides the perfect opportunity for young virtuoso Chloe Hanslip to showcase her talents, and the concert concludes with Dvorak’s outgoing and exuberant Symphony No 8.

On Sunday, some of the most talented young people from across the area showcase their skills as the Pakefield Academy of Performing Arts presents Reasons For Seasons.

The performance, at 6pm, includes a mixture of dance and drama as ballet, tap, modern, hip-hop and contemporary dance interlinks with the adventure of a young girl dreaming her way through the seasons in her efforts to help a young fairy find her home and mother.

On Tuesday (8pm) the Marina welcomes Perrier Award-winning comedian Rich Hall. A regular on QI, Rich will be performing in his usual style as the grouchy, deadpan comic genius.
