Victoria Wood’s all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza about a struggling antiques business is being performed this week by the Kettering & District Theatrical Society.
Acorn Antiques – The Musical! follows the story of sisters Miss Babs and Miss Berta, who are finding it hard to keep their antiques shop thriving, as shop after shop on the High Street closes.
A devious third sister, Miss Bonnie, makes plans to sell the shop to The Guilty Bean, the world’s second biggest chain of coffee shops.
With family secrets, life-changing acting and high-spirited musical numbers, can they still employ Mrs Overall? Will Mr Clifford ever get his memory back and remember who he is engaged to? Most worrying of all, will Mrs Overall be able to tap dance while holding the tray?
The show, originally made famous by a Victoria Wood TV sketch, will be performed at The Masque Theatre, at The Latimer Arts College in Castle Way, Barton Seagrave, today, tomorrow and Saturday at 7.30pm.
Tickets cost £12, or £10 for concessions. To book, ring the Kettering Lighthouse Theatre box office on 01536 414141 or visit www.lighthousetheatre.co.uk.
