The cast and crew of Fakenham and Districts Light Operatic Society (Fadlos) will be raising money for Breast Cancer Care on the opening night of their next production.

The group perform Legally Blonde over five nights at Fakenham Community Centre from May 10 to 14 and on the first night invite audience members to show their support for the charity by wearing pink.

Legally Blonde follows the journey of Elle Woods who goes from being seen as dumb blonde to graduating from Harvard Law whilst causing all sorts of mayhem along the way, but proving that hard work and determination can make the world see you in a different light.

Legally Blonde is a fairly new musical which is upbeat and very perky, with comical songs and lively routines.

It has attracted lots of new performers to the stage - the talented Grace Burton has joined the society and taken the title role.

Grace is a well-established singer and talented actress who has done shows in other areas of Norfolk.

Victoria Perryman and Michael Silvester have also joined the cast taking the roles of the crazy, slightly unstable beautician Paulette and the stern and scary Professor Callaghan.
