A black-hearted swindler, a failed inventor and an East End lad with a heart of gold are just some of the characters in a production being staged by popular north Norfolk amateur dramatics group the Blakeney Players.

Entitled Don't Call Me Shirley and written especially for the group by Ralph Wiggins, the musical comedy is set in 1890s London, where a cast of characters sing and dance their way through a series of comic capers.

The production was performed for the first time two weeks ago, with a percentage of proceeds going to local good causes.

The Players will be staging two further shows at their 200-seat theatre in Blakeney Village Hall at 8pm on July 27 and August 3. Tickets, priced £8 (£3 children) are available on the door, from Butcher Andrews Solicitors, Holt, or by phoning the theatre box office on 01263 712023 between 9am and 5pm.
