EXMOUTH Musical Theatre Company are busy rehearsing for their forthcoming production of Chess.

The musical, from the composers of the hit show Mamma Mia, follows the Cold War rivalry of two chess champions - one American, one Russian - as they vie for the world championship and a woman's heart.

Florence, the assistant to American champion Freddie Trumper, and the Russian Anatoly embark on a love affair that packs in great vocals and lots of emotion. Chess includes the popular songs I Know Him So Well and One Night In Bangkok.

And with music by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, formerly of ABBA, and lyrics by Sir Tim Rice, it promises not to disappoint! The show will be directed by David Youll and Lynne Caygill is the musical director. Chess will be appearing at the Exmouth Pavilion from Wednesday, May 27, to Saturday, May 30.

Tickets are £10.50 for flat seating, £12.50 for raised seating (theatre style seating) contact the Exmouth Pavilion on (01395) 222477 or visit the website www.exmouthpavilion.co.uk
