Centre Stage sees the return of Opera Dudes in Codfathers of Croon on Friday 26 November

We were last entertained by this comic duo in 2008 and what a cracking show it was: a wonderful mix of hilarious puns and jokes along with superb singing.

These two Dudes are from very different backgrounds: Neil Allen started singing in the pubs of Nottingham when he was still working as a builder. After a lengthy period retraining as an operatic tenor, he now performs all over the world.

Tim Lole first sang as a cathedral chorister before studying at Cambridge and pursuing a career as a conductor and pianist. However, he soon realised he wasn't getting enough attention behind the keyboard and decided that tenors had all the fun.

This year they make you an offer you cannot refuse: two hours in the company of Opera's answer to the Spice Girls - Posh and Bricks - with some of the most romantic music, the sharpest suits and the corniest jokes! Be invigorated by Verdi, ravished by Rachmaninov and bowled over by Bernstein.

This show will satisfy genuine opera buffs but equally amuse and entertain those who love popular music. They provide entertainment with some great music and first class singing into the bargain. A unique opportunity to enjoy 'salmon' enchanted evening! You won't have laughed so much in ages.

As usual, the show will be at Humphrey Perkins Community Centre starting at 7.00pm. Tickets will cost £7.00 (£8.00 on the door) and £6.00 (concessions) (£7.00 on the door) available at the Paper Shop.
