Seaside postcard sauciness will be delivered to summer audiences at Sheringham Little Theatre, as part of the venue’s annual cocktail of professional drama.

This year’s summer repertory season, which opens on July 26 with Marc Camoletti’s frenetic farce Don’t Dress For Dinner, features the traditional mix of comedy, romance, thrills and murder.

Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: “This year we are opening with a bang by staging a rip-roaring farce with a six-strong cast.

“But also watch out for a risqué raunchy seaside comedy in What the Butler Saw and a great finale with TV writer Kay Mellor’s A Passionate Woman. We are really looking forward to the whole season.”

Also featured in the line-up will be the romantic thriller Double Trouble and Living Together – part of the Alan Ayckbourn Norman Conquests comedy trilogy.

“We always aim to provide something for everyone in our summer season,” Mrs Thompson added.

On the Little Theatre menu in the run-up to the summer rep season is a comedy by newly-formed group the Sheringham Little Theatre Drama Society, which will be making its debut in aid of the theatre’s improvement fund with the wartime favourite ‘Allo ‘Allo from May 22-26.

Other upcoming shows include At the Drop of a Hippopotamus - BBC radio comic Tim Fitzhigham’s take on the songs of Flanders and Swann - and, on May 12, The Giant Balloon Show, featuring family fun from contemporary circus and theatre company Dizzy O’Dare.

On June 8, the theatre will be screening John Hurt’s final movie That Good Night, with people of all ages invited to join in a nationwide mass music making session on June 21 as part of National Make Music Day,

The theatre’s youth musical theatre group will also be getting in on the act, by staging Little Women the Musical from July 5-7.

Details of the summer season, and the theatre’s full programme of drama, music, comedy, movie and live screenings from May to September, are in the latest brochure, which is out now.
