Cromer and Sheringham Operatic and Dramatic Society has been given the Royal seal of approval.
It has received a letter of support from Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, wishing it well ahead of its latest production - a comic take on TV sitcom the Vicar of Dibley.
The cast and crew have also received letters and photos from some of the actors and actresses who starred in the television series including James Fleet who played Hugo and Gary Waldhorn who played his father David. Other letters have been received from actress Keeley Hawes and current Dr Who, Peter Capaldi who both starred in the series.
Trevor Peacock, who played Jim Trott in the original television series, said: 'I am delighted that you're having a crack at The Vicar of Dibley! It's popularity still amazes me, I really hope that the show makes Sheringham laugh loud and long.'
