TONIGHT the Marina Theatre's prestigious association with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra continues with a rare opportunity to enjoy some of the most famous music from Hollywood's golden age.

Conducted by Nick Davies with West End soloists Hal Fowler and Celia Graham, the evening features works by Cole Porter, Rogers and Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, and Lerner and Loewe.

Hal's West End credits are numerous and include Alex in Aspects of Love, Billy Bigelow in Carousel, Javert in Les Misérables, Arnaud du Thil in Martin Guerre and Cousin Kevin in Tommy where he met his wife, Kim Wilde.

Celia began her career at the age of 11, performing in Scottish Opera's Street Scene by Kurt Weill. Since then she has gone on to play many roles on both stage and screen. Her theatre credits include Cosette in Les Misérables, Maria in West Side Story and most recently the starring role of Christine Daae in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera. Just a few seats remain available for tonight's concert, which commences at 7.30.

Tomorrow some of the most talented children from across Suffolk perform at the Lowestoft theatre in a special musical gala. Taking part are the North Suffolk Youth Orchestra, North Suffolk Youth Concert Band and the Lowestoft County Music School.

The programme will feature a range of music, from movements from a Symphony Haydn, to selections from the music of Abba.

Sunday brings a sell out performance by top comedian Michael McIntyre. In preparation for his 30-date UK arena tour this autumn, the comedy sensation of 2009 warms up at the Marina. Michael's date broke all box office records as the fastest selling show in the theatres history.

On the Marina big screen next Tuesday and Wednesday are Tom Hanks, Ewan McGregor and Skellen Skarsgard who star in the follow up to the Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons (12A).

Next Friday brings the start of the Marina summer cinema season, promising a host of blockbuster entertainment over the coming months.

In addition the venue hosts the national touring production of the hit musical Singin' In The Rain for just five days from July 22.
