Laughs a-plenty are guaranteed when Dereham Operatic Society presents its latest play next month at the town's Memorial Hall.
They are presenting the cult hit comedy, The Farndale Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Murder Mystery - a spoof on the world of amateur dramatics.
The strain is beginning to show on producer Ross Holland's face as he works with untalented actresses amid scenery crashing down, lines forgotten and cast rows threatening the play.
The play is the creation of writers David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr, authors of a series of plays that show an incredibly incompetent group of ladies trying to put on Macbeth, a ghost story and in this case, a murder mystery.
Don't be surprised when you are in the Memorial Hall to find that the good ladies of the FAHETGDS selling fudge in the foyer and there could even be an interval quiz.
The cast comprises five characters (four females and one male) with opportunities for doubling, sharing and cross-dressing.
- 1 Neighbours' tribute to crash victim who 'thought the world of her dogs'
- 2 Locked-up play area to be refurbished after public outcry
- 3 Crowds turn out to celebrate first ever Dereham Day
- 4 'It's scary' - foodbank volunteers lift lid on cost of living crisis
- 5 Drug dealing mother-of-five had ‘cocaine stuffed in bra’
- 6 Dereham school recognised for commitment to equality and diversity
- 7 Norfolk woman dies after being stung by wasp in Spain
- 8 Century-old farm machinery firm invests £6m in its factory's future
- 9 Crash on A47 causes delays and bus disruption
- 10 Extra speed check camera vans to target Norfolk's 'village speeders'
There will be three performances of this hilarious play each at 7.30pm starting on March 12 and continuing until March 14. It is being directed by Tim Cara.
Tickets for the performances are available from Just Kitchenware on Dereham High Street or by telephone to 01362 699899.
