TV stars of dance and comedy, a golfing guru and music ranging from classical cello to Irish jigs, are among the early season treats being lined up at Cromer Pier.

The stars of Strictly Come Dancing Pasha Kovalev and Katya Vishilas have devised a sensational new 'live' show that is a must for fans of the TV contest.

Pasha was partnered with Countdown's Rachel Riley in last year's series.

The stage show on March 27 sees Russian Pasha and Lithuanian Katya feature with guest dancers in a series of costumed dance routines ranging from the magic and sparkle of Cha Cha and passionate drama of the Paso Doble to and the full-on energy of the Jive.

On April 4 wickedly outspoken Jim Davidson returns to the theatre with Richard Digance in Back Together Again.

Jim fresh from the Big Brother House will spill the beans on what really went on behind the fence.

He is joined by comedy entertainer and renowned musician, Richard Digance for a short tour.
