A Norwich theatre company which had humble beginnings by starting out by performing in a friend's garage is putting on its second show titled USHERS: The Front of House Musical.

Sound Ideas are putting on the show at the Maddermarket Theatre from September 6, till September 9.

Ushers: The Front of House Musical is a comedy following the working lives of those who are actually found to be the most stagiest people in the theatre – the front of house staff – portraying the lives of ice-cream and programme sellers who dream big.

The multi-award winning theatre company originally formed in 2013 for the Norwich Fringe Festival as five theatre-goers came together in one of their friend's garages around a piano.

Performing in bar shows, the group has now expanded to full theatre performances with Ushers being its fourth of the year.

Tickets are available for £15 from www.maddermarket.co.uk or on 01603 620917.
