Please note that A Tribute to Elvis, appearing here in February, has changed date and will now be on Saturday 5th February - one week earlier than originally announced. It's still going to be a great night with two of the best Elvis performers in the world - we just need to make more time to build a lake for the Neville's Island set.
Tickets are available from Malcolm's Musicland or here.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
Award-winning stand-up comedian Jenny Eclair has just entered the jungle on hit ITV reality show I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here, and assuming she survives, will be heading here on 19th March
Tickets are already on sale for Jenny's new show, in which she reflects on reaching 50-years-old, and will no doubt tell stories of life in the camp and coping with creepy crawlies, basic toilets, and Gillian McKeith.
Jenny heads a comedy line-up that includes Richard Herring, Phil Cool, upcoming sketch group Idiots of Ants, and loads more to be announced. Keep checking the website - but beat the rush and get your Jenny Eclair tickets now from Malcolm's Musicland 01257 264362 or online.

There's only a handful of tickets left for The Houghton Weavers on Sunday 28th November, so get in quick if you want to see them. Only available at Malcolm's Musicland.
Chorley Empire Community Cinema have a busy couple of weeks ahead and would like you to join them for two special occasions.
On Thursday 25th November, they're showing the Frank Sinatra film Pal Joey, about a man torn between good girl Linda (Kim Novak) and Chorus Girl Vera (Rita Hayworth). The classic musical romance features the song "The Lady Is A Tramp" and is part of the Afternoon Classics strand, meaning entrance is just £2 and Cream Teas are on offer for £1.
As an extra incentive to come, BBC Radio 4's Film Programme will be visiting the event to interview the Chorley crew and audience for a future episode. Doors open at 2pm.
On Saturday 4th December it's a double bill for a double celebration. Marking 100 years of film at Chorley Little Theatre, and launching the 25th Anniversary of the group formerly known as Chorley Film Society, there's an 80s classic and a bang-up-to-date movie.
At 6pm, Marty McFly goes to the 1950s in the newly-remastered Back To The Future. This was one of the last films shown at Studio 1-4 on Bolton Road before it closed in September 1986.
Then leaping forward, it's another Robert Zemeckis film as the stylish A Christmas Carol is shown at 8.15pm. A motion-captured digital animated movie, this 2009 release sees Jim Carrey playing Scrooge and all the visiting Ghosts.
Both films are in digital HD on the big-screen, and the evening will also include complimentary food and a glass of wine. Doors open 5.30pm and entry is £4.
Directed by Sean Duxbury
Audition Date – Sunday 28 November 11 am at Chorley Little Theatre
Production Dates – Monday 28 February – Saturday 5 March
Four out-of-condition, middle-aged businessmen sent off on a team building exercise in the Lake District succeed in being the first people ever to get shipwrecked on an island on Derwentwater. Bound in fog, menaced by wildlife and cut off from the world, their pathetic attempts to get themselves rescued are hampered by their inability to cooperate as much as by their ineptitude in the Great Outdoors What should have been a bonding process for Gordon, Angus, Roy and Neville turns into a muddy, bloody fight for survival. Because when night settles in, strange things happen out in the wilds. And what took place on Neville's Island that foggy November weekend none of this particular middle-management team would ever forget
The four characters are:
Neville, whom the others have elected Captain and who has promptly proved his unfitness for the post by leading his team confidently in the wrong direction.
Gordon, the dour malcontent whose cruel sarcasm provides many of the play’s funniest one-liners
Angus, the somewhat dim-witted loser who appears to have bought up a camping shop’s entire stock for the trip.
Roy, a born-again Christian who has recently returned to work following a prolonged breakdown – and who is heading, in the play’s considerably darker second half, for a spectacular relapse.
In addition to the audition, I will be having a read-through of Act 1 on Tuesday the 23 November at the theatre starting at 8pm. Do not worry if you cannot come to the read-through, this is simply a way of familiarizing yourself with the play before the audition.
If anyone has any problems attending the audition or has any questions please contact Sean Duxbury on 07976 111209 or use the contact form on this website.
