Mack & Mabel stars Paul Tinker as Mack Sennett and Becky Gilbert in her debut leading role for MADAOS.

Becky plays Mabel Normand and the show deals with the complex relationship between Max, a temperamental, workaholic film director and Mabel, a waitress who became one of his biggest stars.

In a series of flashbacks, Sennett recalls the time he discovered Mabel back in 1911, her rise to stardom and their love affair.

Then she leaves him to work for the “serious” director William Desmond Taylor (played by Dave Yates).

Music from the show was made famous by Torvill & Dean when they won Gold at the European and World Championships in 1982 with a routine performed to the overture from the show.

Tickets are priced at �10 for all seats, �8 concessions available on Tuesday and Saturday matinee, �5 under 12s at all performances.

This years MADAOS is holding a president’s gala evening with tickets for �15 including programme, interval drink and buffet available on Tuesday evening.
