A Dorset amateur theatrical group delivered a spectacular five night performance at Wareham’s traditional cinema.
The Rex Cinema in Wareham, near Poole, hosted the annual Rex Players Variety Show.
This year the players celebrated the upcoming Olympics with hilarious comedy, singing, dancing and acting sketches.
The ‘Going for Gold’ theme was hosted by Rex Player, Michael Wardle who took audiences back to when the Olympic Games first started in 776 BC and through the ages.
The audience were hysterical when nine of the performers did a comedy sketch called the ‘Nonathlon’. On the small stage the performers re-enacted a small sequence of an Olympic sport full with sexual innuendos.
Another audience favourite was the synchronised swimming sketch, where the players delivered a flawless gold medal performance.
The Rex Players raised over £800 over the five nights for their local charity, The League of Friends Wareham Hospital fund, in memory of Rex Player Sheila Townsend who died last year.
The Rex Players formed in 1996 and since then the show has gone from strength to strength. Over the years the players have raised over £40,000 for local causes.
