The Pathhead Players present their annual Spring production this week – an interpretation of a classic movie comedy.
The stage adaptation of the 1955 movie The Ladykillers is on at 7.30pm today (Wednesday), Thursday and Friday (April 16-18) in the community hall, 11 Main Street, Pathhead.
Graham Linehan (writer of Father Ted) produced the script for the stage play based on the film.
Pathhead Players’ treasurer Bob Miller said: “Usually you get a book or a play and somebody rehashes it into a film.
“But this guy has done it totally differently.”
Eexplaining why people should come along, Bob said: “It’s funny. The tickets aren’t expensive. In fact we haven’t increased ticket prices for five or six years.
“As treasurer that pains me, but it is a good thing. And the price includes a cup of tea and biscuits. That’s just the way it has always been.”
Tickets £6 (£4.50) are available from Pathhead Post Office, Wahlberg Bakers and on the door. Visit www.pathheadplayers.org.uk
