FOR those who fancy a good old light-hearted sing song with plenty of laughter along the way then they should get themselves over to Millom for a theatrical kind of tribute show.

On Thursday, April 18 (7.30pm), the Beggar's Theatre hosts Don't Panic a vibrant variety production in the style of Dads Army, based at the outbreak of the Second World War.

All the well-known characters are in the mix along with Variety Productions own musical maestro who provides some stirring renditions of wartime favourites on the piano; add in some magic and human puppetry and Don’t Panic is a surefire hit.

According to Variety's Andy Gaskell audience interaction is a big part of the show and there's plenty of hilarious moments courtesy of the quick-witted cast in a highly entertaining evening with the Home Guard.

Among the many high profile acts playing the Millom theatre is none other than Lee Ridley, aka Lost Voice Guy, who rose to prominence in June after his clever, hilarious comedy routine landed him top spot in the 12th series of Britain's Got Talent.

Lee's heading off on a tour of the UK, stopping off at The Beggar's Theatre on Saturday, April 13 (8pm), with his I’m Only In It For The Free Parking show.

Meanwhile, on Sunday (2pm), Beggar's Theatre hosts Lyngo Theatre with Tom Thumb, a show performed entirely on and under a kitchen table full of Lyngo magic with feathery spinning birds, a flying house and a portable forest. CBeebies Patrick Lynch, who has been performing it for more than a decade, brings the classic story to life in a playful and fascinating show.

The Beggar's Theatre box office is open Monday to Friday, 10am-5pm.
