Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A THEATRE group has ‘great ex­pec­ta­tions’ for its next show when they per­form a Charles Dick­ens clas­sic.

The thes­pi­ans at Mac­cles­field Am­a­teur Dra­matic So­ci­ety (MADS) bring Great Ex­pec­ta­tions to the stage at the Lord Street theatre at the end of Novem­ber.

Group mem­ber Suzanne Copeland said: “Bring­ing to life all the vivid char­ac­ters of the novel, this adap­ta­tion by Hugh Leonard con­veys the story with great clar­ity, at­mos­phere and the­atri­cal flair.

“Pip will be played by Oliver Bracey, Miss Hav­isham by multi-award win­ning Su­san Sills and Mag­wich by Richard Probyn, along with a cast of MADS favourites and some new faces.

“Gail Hard­man takes the helm as di­rec­tor so some tech­ni­cal wiz­ardry is as­sured.”

The story re­volves around the life of poor or­phan Pip who is taken un­der the wing of the ec­cen­tric Miss Haver­sham and her adopted daugh­ter Estelle.

The play runs from Novem­ber 30 un­til De­cem­ber 5. Tick­ets are now on sale at £7-£9 from the box of­fice on 01625 611974 or at www. tick­et­source.co.uk/ mad­sthe­atre.
