Prepare to be entertained in Dunchurch when two variety shows take place at the village hall.
Members of Dunchurch Festival Group will take to the stage with a number of famous sketches from the likes of Ronnie Corbett and Victoria Wood.
They take place on Friday, September 23 and 24.
Ann Wright, of Dunchurch Festival Group, said: “The variety shows are going to be filled with music, singing, dancing, comic sketches and the recreation of some iconic comic sketches, plus a preview of the Pantomaniacs’ next production.
“They are performed by some of the best local talent from the Dunchurch and Rugby area.”
Ann said they are guaranteed to raise a smile.
“It will be brilliant, the rehearsal was very funny,” she said.
In a year of significant national anniversaries and some sad losses in the world of entertainment, the shows promises a number of these topical references.
Proceeds will go to one of Her Majesty’s children’s charities and village good causes.
As well as hilarious sketches, there will be a Python tribute and performances by Dunchurch Voices and (Saturday only) The Dunchurch Band.
There are also plans to include a short excerpt from next year’s pantomime, The Princess and The Pea, written by Sue Protheroe.
The Saturday show will kick off with complimentary sparkling wine, a trio of puddings and a liqueur in the interval. During both intervals there will be a licensed bar and fundraising raffles.
Tickets are available from Wanda’s Ladies’ Fashions, The Square, Dunchurch, (01788) 522021. It costs £6 for adults, £3 for under 16s on September 23 and Saturday is £12. For more information, visit www.dunchurchevents.org
