RIOTOUS, rousing and retro entertainment comes to Northlew this weekend.
In the spirit of the BBC's hugely popular The Good Old Days (1953 to 1983), Northlew Amateur Dramatic Society will perform their own music-hall style show. Richard Rossiter-Stead will invoke the spirt of the Leonard Sachs, who used to host the TV series.
The evening promises to be a delightful mixture of fun, dance, magic, recitation and song performed by the company and, as Leonard used to say, "chiefly yourselves".
Audience members will be transported from the East End of London to the Egyptian desert and back to somewhere called Southlew.
Tears may be shed as a melodrama unfolds and yet more anguish will be heaped on with tales of unrequited love and canine deprivation.
The show is at Victory Hall, Northlew on Friday, April 4 and Saturday, April 5, 7.30pm. Tickets: £5 (full), £3 (primary school children) on Elmfield box office (01409 221376) or on the door if still available.
A prize will be presented to the most suitably attired member of the audience. Pasties and ice creams will be available in the interval.
