Swaffham Players are following some hugely successful directorial decisions in casting a man to play an iconic female role.
In their forthcoming production of Blithe Spirit, Rodger Bilverstone stars as Madame Arcati – a fantastic honest portrayal of this eccentric medium!
He follows in the footsteps of Craig Revell Horwood playing Miss Hannigan in Annie, John Travolta playing Edna Turnblad in Hairspray, Rupert Everett playing Camilla in St Trinians and David Suchet playing Lady Bracknell in The Importance of being Earnest.
Blithe Spirit will be staged at the Sacred Heart School’s Barn Theatre in Swaffham, opening next Thursday and continuing on Friday and Saturday, October 30-31, nightly at 7.30pm. Tickets at £8 each are available now from Ceres bookshop, Swaffham on 01760 722504.
