ONE of the funniest musicals around is coming to the Regent and it promises to be a night to remember.

If you have ever wanted to know what you really get up to on a night out, after alcohol has stolen most of your sensibilities, then this musical may just have some of the hilarious answers.

Bouncers, is John Godber's award winning comedy which is hitting Ipswich in May.

It stars Gareth Hale, of Hale and Pace fame and Tim Vincent who recently starred in Emmerdale. Tim also appeared in Dangerfield and presented Blue Peter.

It has just finished a sell-out run in the West End to rave reviews.

With The Times calling it a "stunning British comedy. A raucous, randy tapestry of life under a neon sign". The Daily Mirror said: "You will be rolling in your seats and bursting at the seams."

Bouncers brings the experience of a Friday night to life with four characters playing more than 40 roles. From the tingling anticipation to the blurry-eyed chucking out time.

The characters include a group of lager-chugging lively lads, a gaggle of good-time girls, a smooth talking DJ, and of course the four muscle-bound security guards who watch the night unfold from the sidelines.

These muscle bound men comment from the sidelines telling the audience all that is going on in and outside the club.

Bouncers was first written and performed in the late 1970s and has been up-dated for the new millennium. It now features a fantastic sound track with the likes of Robbie Williams, All Saints and some up-beat dance tracks to really get the party going.

The show will run from May 13 to 18 with shows starting at 7.30pm, and 2.30pm showings as well on Wednesday and Saturday.

Tickets cost £15.50 or £14.50 with £2 off with concessions. On the opening night it will be buy one ticket and get one free.

For more information and to buy tickets call the box office on 433100.
