Not only do you have a last chance to the amazingly hilarious Fly Me To The Moon this weekend, but Belsonic continues all the way through the week!
1. Fly Me To The Moon
The Lyric Theatre
Continues until Sat 22 Aug
With shows running Tuesday – Saturday at 7.45 pm or the matinee option of the Saturday 2.30 pm showing, you would be crazy not to jump at this last chance to see the hilarious double-act featuring Tara Lynne O Neil and Katie Tumelty, bring Marie Jone’s play to life.
The pair play Francis and Loretta- two community care visitors. Davy, one of their elderly charges, has had a significant win on the horses, but he doesn’t know. When the cash-strapped women learn that Davy will not be around for a considerable time they are faced with a mouth-watering dilemma.

6. Little Shop Of Horrors
Strand Arts Centre
Aug 23 and 24
Brighten up your summer with a highly-entertaining trip to the theatre as NiStars presents Little Shop Of Horrors at Strand Arts Centre on August 23 and 24.
As part of the EastSide Arts Festival 30 budding young performers will feature in the production.
Little Shop Of Horrors centres on a weedy florist shop worker who becomes an overnight celebrity when he (inadvertently) raises a strange plant, fortunately saving the shop from closure.
Slight twist, the plant has astonishing thirst… for human flesh and blood.
