Players’ latest show goes full steam ahead
It was full steam ahead for the cast of The King’s Lynn Players’ latest production, The Railway Children, which is being staged in March.
They picked a gorgeous day to head to the former Wolferton station, near Lynn, for a photoshoot!
Now a private home, it was the perfect location for the cast of actors and the Players want to extend a huge thank you to owner Richard Brown.
Director Sharon Fox said: “To have such a fabulous location right on our doorstep was perfect and Richard was so accommodating... the cast had a great day and we even managed to pick a dry one with some sunshine!”
Publicity officer Tom Clarke said: “Rehearsals are going really well and ticket sales have been really strong for this nostalgic tale. Audiences love a show they know and that reminds them of childhood... this one ticks all the boxes.”
Through the words of Station Master, Mr Perks, the story of Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis is brought to life.
Their world is turned upside down when unbeknown to them, their father is imprisoned for selling state secrets.
With their mother, they move to Three Chimneys Cottage in the country. The railway near their new home becomes the focal point for a series of adventures which bring new friendships, love and dramas that unite the whole community.
