Saxophonist Neil Maya and pianist Philip Clouts have assembled a set which features music from the greats of South Africa including Abdullah Ibrahim, Miriam Makeba, and Hugh Masakela.

Philip Clouts was born in Cape Town and has loved South African jazz from childhood. The music has influenced his own playing and composing in the worldbeat group Zubop, and more recently in the Philip Clouts Quartet. “It’s a great pleasure to revisit some of my original sources of inspiration for this evening” says Clouts. “We’ll be playing pieces that connect directly to the audience – they are very melodic, with catchy rhythms”

THEATRE: The Marine Players present The Vicar of Dibley | Wednesday 21 to Saturday 24 March

All the characters of the cherished comedy return to the stage in this community play.

stained glass image copy

They are brought to life with a wonderful local cast, courtesy of the Marine Players. The chocolate obsessed Vicar, the dim but charming Alice Tinker, her love Hugo, and his disapproving father will all make an appearance in this hilarious adaptation of the TV classic.

The Marine Players is a talented local drama group based in Lyme Regis. Formerly the Lyme Regis Dramatic Society, the Marine Players were formed at the beginning of 2016 in order to move to a closer relationship with the Theatre, and attract a younger and more wide-ranging membership.

In exchange for free use of the theatre, profits from productions go towards the upkeep of the theatre. So far the players have contributed towards productions such as The Tempest of Lyme, Around the World in 80 Minutes, and Monmouth.

The original TV series was produced by Tiger Aspect, with script by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer, and has been adapted by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter.
