Watlington Players’ version of The Producers opens tonight - complete with zimmer frames after successful appeal
West Norfolk village show takes to the stage this week
A West Norfolk amateur dramatics is due to open its show tonight with all its big numbers in tact after an appeal for zimmer frames sparked a great response.
The Watlington Players were rehearsing The Producers earlier this year when they realised they didn't have enough of the frames for one of the song and dance numbers.
But an appeal via the EDP saw around 20 of the frames arrive and the cast were able to put them to very good use.
Choreographer Emily Law, a teacher at the village's school of dance, put together the routine which is due to be revealed to the public for the first time on Wednesday night.

'This is the first time The Producers has been performed in this area,' Mrs Law said.
