There are two open air theatre shows coming to the Beachfront Events Area next to the Leisure Centre this coming weekend – so pack a picnic and a blanket to sit on and join Heatbreak Productions for David Walliams’ Mr Stink on Sunday 20th or The Great Gatsby on Saturday 19th.
On Sunday June 20th at 4pm Heartbreak Productions bring an adaptation of David Walliams’ best seller ‘Mr Stink’, a modern tale of how a friendship with an outsider brings a dysfunctional family closer together. Packed with fun, humour and a heart warming message, this touching tale provides the perfect family entertainment.
You’re invited to celebrate Annabelle’s 10th birthday, hosted by everyone’s favourite MP candidate, Janet Crumb! (Almost) everyone is welcome… that is, everyone apart from Chloe’s particularly smelly new friend, Mr Stink.
One perfectly normal afternoon in an average English town, two restless souls unite on a park bench – one of them the lonely 12 year old Chloe Crumb, and the other an incredibly smelly homeless man. Oh, and let’s not forget his loyal dog, the Duchess. Acting upon her curiosity and responding to her kindness, Chloe and Mr Stink forge an extraordinary and rewarding friendship that takes them to the heady heights of live television and Downing Street via a garden shed.

The Great Gatsby
On Saturday 19th at 7pm get your glad rags on, work up your best Charleston, and get your cocktail glass at the ready and join Heartbreak Productions and the Nick Carraway quartet for an evening of jazz, prohibition style! Served up with a twist of iconic style, this outdoor adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is the perfect way to mark 100 years since prohibition.
Nick is not only the band leader but a top-notch storyteller. When he’s in the mood , he can take you back to the summer of 1922 when he lived next door to none other than the infamous Jay Gatsby.
Nick was working as a bond salesman in New York the summer he met the mysterious party-throwing millionaire. Before long, Nick found out that Gatsby and his cousin Daisy (who conveniently lives nearby) used to be an item. Gatsby is still in love with (read obsessed with) Daisy, but Daisy is now married to the pretentious and unfaithful Tom.
Dress for the weather, bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and don’t forget the picnic and prosecco (now that prohibition has been lifted!).
Age: Suitable for 9+
