Their stage adaptation of Dad’s Army features three classic episodes of David Croft and Jimmy Perry’s beloved comedy following the misadventures of Walmington-on-Sea’s Home Guard.

Donning the uniform will be Tony Wilds as Captain Mainwaring, Colin Harris as Corporal Jones and Declan Matwij as Private Pike (stupid boy!).

It also features a dynamic set, musical accompaniment and authentic costumes in its limited four-performance run at Dereham’s Memorial Hall from March 9 to 11, (7.30pm nightly, 2.30pm Saturday matinee).

Tickets, costing £12, are available online at www.derehamtheatre.co.uk or from The Little Gallery in Norwich Street, 01362 690969.
