The evening’s entertainment will begin with ‘For Starters’ by Nick Warburton. Daisy is a recently employed young waitress at a hotel and Roland, a regular and rather particular customer, is getting more than he ordered!

A spokesperson for the group said: “Daisy attends to him in her unique way, resulting in a warm-hearted and funny play.”

The Cecil Players Amateur Dramatic Society are meeting for a rehearsal of Who Killed The Budgie.

The spokesperson said: “Everything is not going to plan with colourful characters, including a prima donna who loves her vodka, an unhappy director and a cast member who is due to give birth any day, plus other interesting characters.”

The production is being held at Howden Clough Community Centre, Leeds Road, on Thursday, July 6, Friday, July 7 and Saturday, July 8. Performances start at 7.30pm each night.
