THE Royston-based drama group Cads (Corvus Amateur Drama Society) is giving a preview performance of its entry into this year's Cambridge Drama Festival on Sunday evening.

The group is hoping to complete a hat-trick of successes at the drama festival later in the month.

Last year it took the best play award for its production of Tom Stoppard's A Separate Peace, as well as the best cameo award and audience appreciation award.

In 2005, it took the audience appreciation award for Nick Warburton's The Bread Pudding.

This year's one-act entry is The Case of the Prince Formerly Known as Hamlet, which has been adapted from a radio script by Bruce Kane.

The play looks at the Shakespeare story through the eyes of private eye Justin Thyme, a hard-bitten, world-weary detective in the Humphrey Bogart-San Spade mould.

The play will be performed at Greneway School on Sunday at 7.30pm.

It will complete a double bill with the Foxton Vixens drama group's festival entry, Short Changed, a play about a retired school head mistress who applies for a place in sheltered accommodation to discover much is know about her background.

Ticket for the performance will cost £5 each and are available on the door, or can be reserved by calling 01763 242906.

The Cambridge Drama Festival - which is now it its 40th year - will run from April 14-19 at the Mumford Theatre, Cambridge.

Festival details and tickets are available from the Mumford Theatre box office on 0845 2320.
