A CELEBRATION of musical theatre from the last quarter of a century will be performed from Tuesday.

In a year that has seen Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera both celebrate 25-year anniversaries, The Bancroft Players present Musical Connections, an evening of hits from the period.

The production will feature songs from musicals such as Legally Blonde, Wicked, Shrek, Rent, Hairspray, Mary Poppins, Little Shop of Horrors and We Will Rock You - each linked by a theatrical fact.

A cast of 10 musical theatre performers take to the stage at The Queen Mother Theatre in Walsworth Road, Hitchin, from Tuesday.

The 7.45pm nightly performances continue until Saturday, November 19.

Tickets range from �7-�11 and can be purchased via www.qmt.org.uk or by calling 01462 455166.
