Theatre goers of all ages are sure of an evening of fun and laughs as the Everton Village Players present their October production of ‘Curtain Up!’ by Peter Quilter.
Everton Village Hall will be transformed into a theatre within a theatre for the set of this fast paced comedy about five women who inherit equal shares in a dilapidated theatre and their plans to bring it back to life.
The intrepid quintet try various fund-raising schemes but their most ambitious is to hold a concert featuring a world-famous star, who agrees to appear for no fee.
The audience will see the ‘theatre’ morph from a total wreck into a glittering performance venue, where an expectant sell out audience is waiting impatiently for the star act.
However, plans go awry as the five would be impresarios race to keep the show on the road.
Curtain Up! will be staged in Everton Village Hall between Wednesday 24th and Saturday 27th October.
Tickets are £5 and are available by calling 01777 817275 or visiting www.evplayers.org.uk
Tickets for the play and a pre-theatre dinner at the Blacksmith’s Arms are also available, priced at £18.50.
