Dereham Operatic Society will be making a dramatic exit from the town's Memorial Hall tonight when the curtain rises on the comic caperings by the Farndale Avenue ladies.

Audiences will be sure to be in stitches as they see the enthusiastic ladies struggling with beasts in the cellar, eccentric maids and a plethora of victims “on stage” while the juggling the demands of twins, tantrums and Tupperware “off-stage”.

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen Guild Dramatic Society will be making another spectacle of themselves in this sinister, spine-chilling mystery of murder and mayhem entitled, The Haunted Through Lounge and Recessed Dining Nook at Farndale Castle.

The actors of the Dereham company, who are appearing on stage at the Memorial Hall for the last time before it closes for major refurbishment work, will have their work cut out to successfully “con” their audiences as they “forget lines, miss cues, and generally descend into chaos”.

The play opens tonight at 7.30pm continuing tomorrow and on Saturday . Tickets at £8 (balcony), £7 (stalls) and £6 (concessions) are available by contacting the box office at the Hallmark card and gift shop in Nelson Place, Dereham, on 01362 694222.
