A dog will be taking a star role alongside members of a Burnham-On-Sea drama group in its annual show later this month.

Monty will be playing the part of Sandy in the Burnham Excellent Entertainment Society's (BEES) performance of the musical Annie at The Princess Theatre on Saturday September 9th and Sunday September 10th.

Around 25 performers will be taking part in the show, which will be held at 7.30pm on the Saturday night and 3pm on the Sunday afternoon.

In readiness forhis performance, Monty was given a special grooming at Sanders Garden World this week - and is pictured above with co-star Annie (played by Emily Lang) and Garden World's Pet Centre assistant Andy Roberts.

Sandy Ballantyne, BEES spokeswoman, told "Sandy the dog went down to Garden World’s Pet and Aquatic Centre for a special grooming session with co-star Annie to make sure he looks his best when he appears on stage for the first time."

BEES is a self-funded group consisting of more than 30 actors and actresses and a further six members who work behind-the-scenes. It is one of Somerset's longest running drama groups and celebrated its 12th anniversary this year.

Tickets for Annie are available on the door of the Princess at £6.50 for adults and £5 for concessions. Alternatively, they can be purchased in advance, at £5 for adults and £4 for concessions, by phoning the ticket hotline on 01278 792520.
