"Curtain Up!" is the third play that Dewsbury Arts Group (DAG) has performed by Peter Quilter.

It tells the story of five women who inherit equal shares in a dilapidated theatre and plan to bring it back to life again.

They try various fundraising schemes but their most ambitious is to hold a concert featuring local talent and a world-famous star who agrees to appear for no fee.

However, their plans go awry and it’s a race against time to keep their audience from guessing the truth of the matter.

A DAG spokesperson said: "This is a fast-paced and very funny comedy, definitely one not to be missed."

Dewsbury Arts Group's production of "Curtain Up!" opens on Saturday, July 2 and then runs from Monday, July 4 to Saturday, July 9.

Tickets cost £12 and can be booked online at or by telephone on 0333 6663366.
