Burglaries….What a Timely Story
Here in the Sayalonga at least 20 homes have been burgled and ransacked in our area over the last month.

They often do it at night when the owners are in the house asleep.

Friends of ours actually had them recorded on their outside cctv at 22:30 a couple of Saturdays ago. They were in bed at the time, the burglars right outside their bedroom window.

Fortunately a PIR light came on which spooked them and they left.

Three people, faces masked, wearing gloves and carrying backpacks.

Saturday seems to be their favourite night.

They must know the area pretty well as we are all campo and they burgle a house, walk cross country, and believe me it’s not easy in daylight let alone pitch dark to the next one and so on. Often doing 3 or 4 one after the other.

On other occasions it appears that they have been watching in the daytime and strike as soon as they see the owners go out somewhere.

They also break into cars and made one hell of a mess of our friend’s trying to open doors or windows with a crowbar.

The Guardia believe that it is a professional gang who have been operating for 7 months or so between Algarrobo and Competa.

Maybe they are done with this area and moved on to pastures anew.

Real shame as we have to lock everything and be ultra vigilant for the time being.

Recommendation – Car Cleaning Service

I recently had Warren Phillips take my car for him to work his magic on.

As my car is nine years old and has been used regularly to take garden rubbish to the dump and had generally not been looked after, the seats were very stained, and the paintwork had lots of sap on it from being parked under a tree quite regularly.

After Warren had the car and carried out his work, it is now fully back to showroom condition.

Warren is based in Comares but will come to collect your car from you and in my case left me his car to use while I waited for mine to be worked on.

What’s On “Stars of the West End”  in Mijas

The Phoenix Club are off to a concert at Mijas Costa called “Stars of the West End” – it is a theatre show on Friday 24th March in the beautiful Las Lagunas Theatre, Mijas Costa (behind El Corté Inglés).  The audience at the theatre production will hear songs from “The Phantom of the Opera”, “Les Misérables”, “Jersey Boys”, “Oliver”, “Mama Mia”, “Miss Saigon” and many more during a 2-hour show (2 acts with a 20-minute interval).

The “West End” comes to the Costa de Sol in March 2017 with 3 Principle performers from currently running Musicals arriving with the popular “Stars of the West End” show.

Featuring favourite songs from the most popular musicals, Mike Sterling (Phantom of the Opera), Lisa-Anne Wood (Les Misérables) and Michael Conway (Jersey Boys) bring the very best of musical theatre to Spain. All have had leading roles in the top West End musicals over the years…….

Mike Sterling has been an Artiste in Theatre, Television, Concert and recording for the past 23 years. He has starred in major hit musicals in London’s West End, and is known most notably for his interpretation of ‘The Phantom’ in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera” (over 1000 shows), and ‘Jean Valjean’ in Cameron Mackintosh’s  “Les Misérables” which have earned him international acclaim. Thus, to date he has enjoyed an extremely successful career on a global scale, including a 6 month sell out UK tour as ‘Dexter Haven’ in Cole Porter’s ‘High Society’, alongside Wayne Sleep.

Lisa-Anne Wood – Before graduating from the ‘Guildford School of Acting’ Lisa-Anne landed the role of ‘Cosette’ in the Olivier Award-winning cast of “Les Misérables”; this marked her West End debut. Lisa-Anne was ‘Christine’ in “The Phantom of The Opera” at Her Majesty’s theatre and “The Phantom of The Opera” 30th Anniversary Concert Performance. And in 2014, returned for the second year running to star opposite John Barrowman in “Dick McWhittington”.

Michael Conway is currently playing ‘Joe Pesci’ in “The Jersey Boys”, having previously played ‘CC LaDrue’ in “Flashdance – The Musical”, also ‘Fyedka’ in “Fiddler on the Roof” and ‘Prince Charming’ in “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”.

Together, these 3 seasoned performers bring all the fun and emotion of musical theatre in this memorable show, here for the FIRST time on the Costa del Sol.

Date:  Friday24th March
Time: Depart Algarrobo Lidl at 18.00

What’s On – The Nerja Players Tonight, Tuesday 7th March

The Nerja Players are presenting a dramatised reading of two one-act comedies by Christopher Durang, one of America’s most produced playwrights,

“The Actor’s Nightmare” and “Not My Fault.”

The two plays are related in theme, based on men who find themselves in impossible situations by no doing of their own; yet they are surrounded by people who seem to know their predicament yet go on with their own activities as if everything was in good order.

The performance starts at 19:00 hours and will be held in the Nerja Bridge Club – entrance is through the blue doors next to the Café Royal at the top of Avda Castilla Perez, Nerja.

Doors open at 18:30 hours, so arrive early to get a good seat.

Do come along and share an enjoyable evening with us.
