Fakenham and District Light Operatic Society (FADLOS) have been having a break following the huge success of their 51st Musical production My Fair Lady in May.

During the performance week the society had collection buckets and raised £68 which has been donated to the Friends of Cranmer House.

The group is now getting ready to bring some snow to Fakenham Community Centre with their next production - White Christmas.

The show is a stage adaptation of the much-loved film of the same name featuring the well know song I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas. The society will be searching for their equivalent of Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, with a read through on August 20 at 7.30pm and open auditions on August 22.

Anyone over the age of 14 is welcome to come along and audition for the magical production which will see the society using a high tech LED screen and several snow machines.

The show is also being dedicated to the memory of Roy Ferris and the group will be fundraising for Cancer Research UK.

Finally, FADLOS is celebrating receiving nominations for best production and best pantomime from Noda.
