Blackpool Operatic Players bring Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Sunset Boulevard to the resort’s Grand Theatre from next Wednesday to Saturday.

Based on Billy Wilder’s 1950 Oscar winner, the story revolves around Norma Desmond, a faded star of the silent screen, living in the past at her decaying Los Angeles mansion.

When young screenwriter Joe Gillis strays across her path, she sees in him an opportunity to make her big screen comeback.

It creates a story of romance and tragedy with some of Lloyd Webber’s most famous songs including With One Look, The Perfect Year and the title song. Call the box office on 01253 74 33 39 or www.blackpoolgrand.co.uk
