A one-night-only performance of a hilarious comedy is being staged by a village amateur dramatics group tomorrow night.

Whittingham Players will present Ray Lawrence’s two-act farce, It’s On, It’s Off.

The action takes place in the lounge of Gerald and Daphne Humphreys’ house as they prepare for their daughter Tina’s wedding. Suffice to say, nothing is as it seems.

Group member Ian Blakey believes the show will prove popular with the audience.

He said: “This tale of love, mistaken identity and infidelity will keep the audience guessing right to the very end.

“With shocking revelations, this script has all the ingredients for a thoroughly enjoyable evening’s entertainment.

“This is our eighth annual production and one of the funniest scripts we’ve read in a long time. We laughed our heads off during rehearsals.”

Speaking about the club, he added: “We are a small group of enthusiastic amateur actors who enjoy the thrill of acting, the friendship of working in a team, but above all, having fun.

“Of course, we are always looking for actors, directors, lighting and sound operatives and backstage crew.

“If you are interested in joining us, we offer a warm welcome to one and all, whether experienced or new to drama. So tomorrow night, come and support your local community drama group and share an evening of laughs and enjoyment.”

The show takes place at Whittingham Memorial Institute from 7.30pm.

Entry on the door is £5 adults, children free. There will also be a raffle. Call Maureen Blakey on 01665 574384 for more information.
