Mishaps abound in this rip-roaring comedy about an incompetent amateur dramatic group.

The thespians of Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society are known for murdering classic stories.

And this time they’re getting into the festive spirit by mounting an attack on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

But rehearsals aren’t exactly going to plan.

The characters are battling collapsing scenery and a series of mishaps and unfortunate decisions.

Then there’s the hysterical in-fighting among the cast.

And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a disaster-prone stage master to deal with.

Pendle audiences can expect hilarious madness as the Farndale Avenue ladies bring to life the Ghosts of Christmas with chaotic results.

The play is written by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr and will be presented by Colne Dramatic Society.

Directing is Gordon Ingleby while starring are Marilyn McGinty, Jackie Williamson, Marina Butterworth, Rosemary Osborne and Simon Bailey (pictured above, left to right).

A Christmas Carol is being staged at The Little Theatre, Colne, from May 7th to 12th at 7-30pm.

Tickets: 01282 861424; or visit Colne Library, from 11am to 1pm, on Saturday, April 28th and May 5th.
