Sheringham is one of a handful of holiday towns still hosting a traditional summer repertory season - where a cast team tackles a variety of plays and roles.

The curtain goes up on July 25 with the farce Funny Money, a fast-moving romp revolving around a briefcase stuffed with £750,000 in stolen cash.

Director Gillian King, a Sheringham summer season regular since 2013, said: "It is great to open the season with a classic Ray Cooney farce involving stolen money, wife-swapping and shady police."

The actors are rehearsing at the town's Lighthouse Church. They have been shown a doll's house-sized model of the set to help them visualise the drama. Funny Money runs from July 25-31.
