THE SKEGNESS Musical Theatre Company will return to the stage this Friday with a brand new show.

The group will tread the boards of the Embassy Theatre with a medley of musical numbers they have never tackled before.

They will be gracing the boards with songs from hit shows such as Billy Elliot and Les Miserables, creating an evening of spectacular song and dance called For One Night Only.

Musical Director, Peter Wellsted, said the new arrangement will give the audience a taste of the musicals which, due to licensing restrictions, cannot be performed in full.

“This is an opportunity to sing songs we could not otherwise perform and a chance to showcase the talent of our gifted singers and dancers,” said Wellsted.

Profits from the show will be donated to MacMillan Cancer Support, as the society has decided to thank the community for its continuing support over the last 48 years of performing to the town.

Chairman of SMTC, Andrea Hall, said; “The last few shows have been so successful we wanted to thank Skegness for providing such great talent and loyal audiences.

“We wanted to give something back to the community and as unfortunately most people know someone who has been touched by cancer, we chose MacMillan who do such a brilliant job.”

The show will also give an opportunity for some of Skegness’s young performers to shine as pupils from the Lisa Jay Stage Institute will feature in the production.

SMTC and the stage institute have a close relationship, with Lisa Jay choreographing their show for the second year.

‘For One Night Only’ will begin at 7.30pm on Friday, February 24.

Tickets costs £13 for adults, £11 for concessions and £36 for families. Visit or call 0845 674 0505 for more information or to buy tickets.
