Cur­tain up on new com­edy drama

The Oban Times - - Districts -

LU­ING’S am­a­teur drama group is ready to tread the boards with a new com­edy fea­tur­ing a fic­tional is­land char­ity shop which is fac­ing a cri­sis.

A new young chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer has been ap­pointed by the char­ity, with plans to up­date the shops and make them more mar­ket- ori­ented.

The shop manager and vol­un­teers are not happy and chal­lenge the planned changes. As well as deal­ing with some ec­cen­tric cus­tomers, the vol­un­teers dis­cover a se­cret, which turns the ta­bles in dra­matic fash­ion.

The play, called Vol­un­teers will be staged on Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 24 and Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 25 in Cul­lipool Hall.

The play is light-hearted and for all ages. The ten mem­bers of the cast all live on Lu­ing and have been re­hears­ing for weeks. Tick­ets are sell­ing fast so early book­ing is ad­vised.

The open­ing night is on Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 24 start­ing at 7pm and there are two more per­for­mances on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 25 at 2.30pm and 7pm.

Tick­ets are £ 5 for adults and £ 3 for chil­dren and can be bought from the Isle of Lu­ing shop - the real one at Cul­lipool - or re­served by tele­phon­ing 01852 314094.

The cast of Lu­ing Am­a­teur Drama Group’s play The Vol­un­teers dur­ing re­hearsals.
