A Melbourn theatre group is getting set to stage a frolicsome French folk tale next weekend.
The cast and crew of Melbourn Amateur Dramatics have been working tirelessly to prepare for their production of Bluebeard at Melbourn Village Hall next Friday and Saturday.
Bluebeard is a comedy-cum-horror musical based on the familiar story of Baron Bluebeard who murders a succession of wives because they are unable to obey him and stay out of his secret chamber. As soon as they turn the key, their fate is sealed.
The group’s Lesley Spratt said: “Our tale is set in that well-known French town of Melbournville, and features the talented MADS cast as you have never seen them before.
“Think Les Miserables crossed with Carry on Screaming and you won’t be far wrong.

“With an original script, original incidental music and a stash of original catchy tunes, we promise you a fun night out and we look forward to inviting you to join us.
“As with all of our spring productions, we would love it if you would like to join in the fun and dress up – so it’s time to powder those wigs and get into those bodices and breeches.”
