The newly-formed Hunstanton Community Players are preparing for their first production which will be staged next Friday, July 1, at Hunstanton Town Hall at 7.30pm.
The play is a long one-act, called Harlequinade, by Terence Rattigan, and shows the unusual life with a professional touring repertory theatre company in the late 1940s.
The stars of the era are putting on a production of Romeo and Juliet, with a cast that is much too old, but things start to go really wrong when the lead actor’s secret daughter arrives at the theatre with startling consequences!
The cast includes Mick Yates as Arthur Gosport, Lisa Powell as Edna Selby, Dee Pritchard as Dame Maud Gosport and Lorna Hutchinson as Miss Fishlock. The director is Kim Barnes.
This is high comedy with wonderful characters and colourful costumes. It will also be entered for the Hunstanton Drama Festival later in July.
Tickets cost just £5 for this performance and are available either from the Tourist Information Centre, members of the cast, or at the door.
This performance will include musical interludes from members of the cast as a curtain raiser.
