On Wednesday, October 8 at 8pm, the fast paced high-energy show, ‘Phantom & The Musicals’ will take to the stage. Now firmly established as the premier show of its kind, this is a musical coaster ride through the music of ‘The King And I’, ‘Les Miserables’ and ‘Phantom Of The Opera’, to Rodgers & Hammerstein and the music of the maestro Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber! Throw in the music of ‘Grease’ and Abba’s ‘Mamma Mia’, add in nostalgic classics such as ‘Calamity Jane’ and ‘The Sound Of Music’, and you can see why this show has something to offer the whole family. ‘Phantom & The Musicals’ will be staged on Wednesday, October 8 at 8pm. Tickets are priced £15 each.
Then comes the hilarious drama ‘Two Nights With George’. One night with George Clooney is never enough for any woman, and Bridie Murphy is no exception. She returns to her Ballymurphy living room, bold, brash and on the voddies again and reunites with her old flame. Much has happened to Bridie in the last few years and she shares this with her confidante George, as well as a few very large Belfast Martinis. With her unique brand of humour and language that would shock a sailor, Bridie’s rollercoaster life continues and she tells it warts and all to George. ‘Two Nights With George’ will take place on Thursday and Friday, October 9 and 10 at 8pm. Tickets are priced £16 and £14 (concession). Tickets for all performances are available through the Box Office on 3752 1821 or online at www.marketplacearmagh.com
