LORNA MARSH

The Full Monty's planned 12-day run at Norwich Theatre Royal has been cancelled after poor ticket sales at other venues.

Although bookings for the Norwich performances from November 30 until December 11 were healthy, other venues where the production was due to visit in September and October had not done so well.

So producers decided to cancel the rest of the tour.

All ticket holders for the show are being notified.

It is hoped the return of Fame the Musical will make up for the disappointment.

Running from November 29 to December 4, the smash hit has attracted more than three million people since its West End launch.

The show, a big hit when it last visited Norwich in 2002, was inspired by the Academy Award-winning film and follows the dreams and dis-appointments of star-struck performing-arts pupils.

In addition, Pure Opera will show on December 10.

This concert performance, from the producers of Pure Puccini, features some of the brightest young talent on the UK opera scene, singing arias, duets and ensembles from, among others, operas by Verdi, Bizet, Mozart and Puccini.

Tickets for both shows are on sale now.

Fame the Musical will show Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm and Friday and Saturday at 5.30pm and 8.30pm.

Tickets cost from £5 to £24.50, with discounts for Friends of the Theatre, over-60s, under-18s and groups.

Pure Opera is at 7.30pm. Tickets cost from £4 to £16.50, with discounts for Friends.
