Rehearsals underway for Berrow drama group's comedy production
rehearsals are underway at a Berrow drama group
as it prepares for the curtain to rise on its production of 'Fringe
Benefits', a comedy and farce by Peter Yeldham and Donald Churchill.
Members of Stage 2 Drama have spent a long year without a production
whilst their rehearsal and performing venue, Berrow Village hall,
was closed for extensive rebuilding and refurbishment.
Now that the new facilities are re-opening for business, Stage
2 is hard at work rehearsing and preparing for the play.
After the lack of a production last year, director Maria Redman
says she is determined to give the audience a real treat.
She told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "This play has a particularly
hilarious script and also packs in loads of physical comedy. In
fact, just reading the script has had the actors in stitches!"
holders are assured of a great evening of entertainment in the
comfortable surroundings of Berrow Village Hall.
Fringe Benefits will be performed on 31st March and 1st - 2nd
April. Tickets, costing £6, can be ordered by calling Doreen
Richards on 01278 783249.
A licenced bar will also be available so the audience can enjoy
a glass of wine, beer or soft drink during the show and at the
The group is also giving ticket holders a chance to win a bottle
of fine champagne by writing their name, email and telephone number
on the back of their ticket and handing it in when they come to
the production. The tickets will all be entered into a draw for
a chance to win the bubbly.
