Those Farndale Ladies are at it again - another well-loved theatrical piece is about to be given their very special 'treatment'.

Those Farndale Ladies are at it again - another well-loved theatrical piece is about to be given their very special 'treatment'.

Norwich Theatre Royal Studio Company presents the catchingly-titled Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Operatic Society's Production of The Mikado from March 2-4, Thursday to Saturday (7.30pm).

The tongue-in-cheek journey into the world of amateur dramatics is running at The Garage in Chapel Field, with cabaret-style seating.

It sees the ever-eager Farndale Ladies group attempt their most ambitious show yet - Gilbert and Sullivan's classic comedy opera The Mikado.

The studio company's David Lambert says: 'If you hear a whirring noise during the show, that is the sound of Gilbert and Sullivan turning in their graves.

'As usual with the Farndale Ladies' Guild, it is not just about the show. There is an origami competition during the interval and the orchestra gets drunk on sherry which is brought backstage during the interval by a well-wisher.
