The Princess Royal Centre for Performing Arts will provide visitors with an opportunity to see a hilarious new production of The Magistrate on January 15th 2013.

Hollywood actor John Lithgow stars in the National Theatre's latest version of the classic farce, which is being broadcast live at the Guernsey venue at 19:00 GMT, with tickets available from £13.

Lithgow takes on the lead role of Mr Posket, an amiable and well-to-do London magistrate whose well-ordered life is thrown into disarray by a series of scandals and mishaps that threaten to undermine his entire reputation.

Olivier Award-winner Nancy Carroll takes on the role of Posket's wife Agatha, whose lie about her son's age kicks off a hilarious sequence of events that has been entertaining audiences for more than 100 years.

The Duke of Richmond Hotel can provide a range of attractive packages for luxury Guernsey hotel guests wishing to attend, including the Get More From Your Stay deal.

It provides a selection of indulgent extras, including a bottle of chilled Champagne on arrival, a traditional afternoon tea or a three-course dinner for two.
