Due to objections from the church on the grounds that it was against their family ethos and denigrating to women, we are sad to announce that we are unable to go ahead with our planned production of Up Pompeii! in October.
We are all extremely sad that after 60 years of affiliation and friendship with the church and so many unchallenged and entertaining productions, we have had to make the decision that our show be postponed until a more suitable environment and venue can be found.
The play had been chosen to celebrate the 100th birthday of Frankie Howerd, a local lad who entertained so many back in his day as it coincided with our 60th anniversary also.
This evening, we will be meeting to find an alternative programme for our October performance and hope to make further comment on this very shortly.
We apologise to all of our loyal friends, fans and followers for any disappointment this may cause.
