ROGUES and Vagabonds will bring favourite songs from the shows to the Civic Hall at the end of the month.
The young company will present song and dance from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Les Miserables, Jacques Brel, Rent, Pirates of the Caribbean and many others will be performed on March 30 and 31 and April 1.
There will also be guest appearances by by duo Lady and the Tramp, singing songs from the shows and from the Priory Rustic Amateur Theatrical Society with The Cherry Sisters, and the Hadland School Musical Theatre Class will present excerpts from Sandy Wilson's The Boyfriend.
And on April 1 people can join in and sing in the Chorus of The Pirates of Penzance.
Last spring, the group raised over £1,100 for the Japan Tsunami Appeals with a sing-a-long Mikado. This year's chosen charity is the local branch of Help for Heroes.
In the afternoon there will be a rehearsal when anyone who would like to sing can learn the chorus numbers, and watch the guest principals being directed in readiness for a semi-staged performance in the evening.
Guest soloists include several from last year. Gaynor Keeble is shortly going to Opera North to sing Dama Hannah in Ruddigore, but on this occasion she will be taking the role of piratical maid-of-all-work Ruth. Amy Cate Walsh sings Mabel, with Carl Donohoe as her father Major-General Stanley - the very model of a Major General. Howard Thompson will be playing a comical policeman.
