By Charles Ludlam - Summer Rep Production

A satirical take on the penny dreadful, this ingenious play covers multiple genres with all characters portrayed by only two actors.

Recently married Lady Enid and Lord Edgar Hillcrest, an Egyptologist, discover their home is still pervaded by the mystery surrounding the death of his first wife, Irma Vep. Servants at the Manor increase the menacing atmosphere as their own dark secrets threaten poor Lady Enid.

We are proud to present our latest Community Production, JOAN LITTLEWOOD’S Musical Entertainment Oh! What a Lovely War, by Theatre Workshop, Charles Chilton, Gerry Raffles and Members of the Original Cast. Title Suggested by Ted Allan.

In this World War 1 centenary year we remember and honour all those involved by performing this epic musical. The show takes an ironic look at war, deftly intertwining hard facts with songs of the era, many with lyric alterations written by the Tommies.

You will be laughing and singing, yet deeply moved by the shocking counterpoint the related statistics provide. Our spectacular array of local talent will enthral you. The play itself will leave you asking ‘Why?’

Tickets £10, under 18′s £5

Can you tell the difference between a lady fern and a male fern or hard and soft ferns?

Come to Sheringham to find out the answers and much more.
We will be going off the paths, so stout footwear is advisable.

Do join our group of entertainers as they lead you in a sing-a-long of wartime classics. These evenings are always great fun with a tremendous community feel. It is wonderful to see so many people in 1940s dress as it truly adds to the atmosphere, but it is not compulsory.

Due to the incredible popularity of our sing-a-longs, please book promptly to avoid the risk of missing out on one of the highlights of the Little Theatre’s year.
