PRODUCERS of a new Portland theatre production promise to put a smile on its audiences’ faces.

‘An Evening of Variety and Laughter’ will be performed on Friday, October 19, and Saturday, October 20, at the Royal Manor Theatre in Fortuneswell .

Due to last year’s sell-out production, this year’s event is a brand-new show and is full of good old-fashioned family friendly humour.

The show contains singing, dancing, magic and comedy.

A theatre spokesman said: “Rehearsals are progressing well and the cast are enjoying themselves immensely. “We’ve never needed to laugh as much as we do today, and for that reason, we do hope that you will come and support your very own local theatre company for a great evening of non-stop laughter.

“Putting on a great show is what we’re known for.”

Tickets are available from Monday, October 8, from Cards and Celebrations in Easton , Danny’s in Fortuneswell or you can phone the box office on 01305 860792, or book on line at

They cost £8 for adults, £7 for seniors and £3 for children.
