A THEATRE company established for adults with learning difficulties perform their next production at the Seagull Theatre, in Pakefield, next week.

The Fabba Theatre Company will be performing Oz, their take on the Wizard of Oz, following their success last year with Fabba Mia.

The company was first established in March last year and are based at the Seagull Theatre. This will be their second production, having worked on it since October.

Oz is produced by Will Isgrove and has seen the classic familiar tale told in a distinctive, high energy style.

It will be performed on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday next week at 7.30pm, with a 2.30pm matinee on the Saturday. Tickets are £8 and £6 for concessions, with sales going to help fund their next production.

In the middle of those performances is a touring drama production of 84 Charing Cross Road.

The play, which is based on a book by Helene Hanff is being toured by the Suffolk-based Open Space Theatre Company. It will be presented next Friday and tickets are £8.50 and £6 for concessions.

Before then, the theatre in Pakefield welcomes a feisty acoustic duo and a highly acclaimed actor.

Tonight innovative band Horses Brawl perform. The Norwich based duo is currently celebrating a substantial grant from the Arts Council of England's Lottery Funding.

They combine traditional folk rhythms with intriguing early styles and melodies from around Europe, and then add in a mix of their own spellbinding compositions. Tickets are £8 and £6.50 and the show starts at 7.30pm.

Tomorrow, the Seagull provides the venue for actor Cameron Stewart to bring to life the world war one diaries of his grandfather, Captain Alexander Stewart.

Stewart's performance draws upon the radically different experiences of two young men at each end of the 20th century and, in re-creating authentically the life of millions of soldiers between 1914-1918, throws up questions about going to war and patriotism.

Tickets are £9 and £7.50.
