Cabaret from BBLOC

BBLOC Bitesize, the cabaret group of Bournemouth and Boscombe Light Opera Company, returns to the Regent Centre in Christchurch tomorrow, Saturday 2nd February, for an evening of music, comedy, song and dance.

Led by James Dixon-Box, BBLOC Bitesize rehearses each week, and has already earned an enviable reputation with shows at hotels, sporting clubs and churches.

The members took part in the Regent Centre's successful Christmas Spectacular.

For One Night Only, this young and vibrant cabaret group will transport the audience to the heart of London's West End and New Year's Broadway, with unforgettable songs from hit shows such as Sound of Music, Guys and Dolls, Chicago, West Side Story and Grease.

It all starts at 7.30.

Alien at Allendale

PARANOID Dramatics, a drama group set up in Wimborne two years ago, is aiming for the stars with its second show, on at the Allendale Centre on Friday and Saturday 8th and 9th and 15th and 16th February.

They will perform what they believe is the first ever stage adaptation of Ridley Scott's famous film Alien, a sci-fi cinematic legend.

The group was formed by Neil Mitchener, mainly from staff at Wilts and Dorset Buses. After a successful production of Robin Hood (which raised more than £200 for Cancer Research) the members decided they wanted something a bit more challenging.

Luc Hayward offered to adapt the Ridley Scott movie for the stage, which was not only a big leap for the actors but provided its own problems for set design and creature creation. Peter Lawford has been in charge of these special effects.

David Mitchell makes his directing debut with the show, and the cast is Lydia Hayward as Ripley, Jason Hill as Dallas, Caroline White as Lambert, Scott Douglas as Kane, Jacqui Tillotson as Ash, Mike Rustici as Parker and John Elliott as Brett.

All profits will go to the Guillain-Barre Syndrome charity.

Performances start at 7.30 and no-one will allowed in after then. The show contains strong language and horror, and also some strobe lighting.
